A BIG Thank you to Garage Squad on restoring our Santa Hot Rod. We are in production now and will be done on September 19. The episode was the season 6 finally on October 30, 2019. The hot rod would not be where it is with the wonderful work and dedication from GRC Racing, River Oaks Auto L&E, Wess' Towing for bringing it to places when needed, Garage Squad, Du-now Automotive Interiors and Upholstery, and Blackstone Motorworks for all their work.
On Saturday December 14, 2019 Calumet City FOP Lodge #1 will host it's annual Santa Present Delivery (AKA Santa Run) with our NEW Santa Hot Rod and the assistance from CN Railroad's Lil Obie. We deliver food and present's to 50 Calumet City families, in need. The event is possible because of Lodge #1 fundraising efforts and many business making donations. The following business have donated in 2018 items to make that years event successful year after year, Midwest Eye Center, Thornton Township, The Lions Club, Bagley’s, and many others.

Calumet City FOP Lodge 1 has been doing a toy run for the less fortunate families in the community for 30 years. In order to draw attention to the program, we are building a hot rod for Santa to ride in while delivering toys. We are in the final stages of assembling the hot rod and are looking for funding to finish this project. Use the link above to make a donation.
