The Ozinga Merry Mixer has been making its way around Chicagoland since November 18th as the highlight of parades and Touch-a-Truck events, but it will really bring some holiday cheer on Thursday, December 7th when it arrives at Comer Children’s Hospital in Chicago to show off its light display, deliver coloring books, and start a partnership between our 90-year-old company and the hospital.
On Thursday, the decked-out holiday-themed concrete mixer will light up its more than 20,000 LED lights to offer a display to patients and their families at Comer Children’s Hospital. The specialty truck will also deliver coloring books to children at the hospital and provide extras for the hospital to keep in their waiting areas.
In addition, Thursday’s visit marks the kickoff of a partnership between Ozinga and Comer Children’s Hospital. The hospital wish list relies on donations to provide toys and goods to patients of all ages. With a significant decrease in donations during the summer months, Ozinga will host a toy drive for the hospital in the summer of 2018.
The Ozinga Merry Mixer will make its way to other holiday celebrations and events throughout Illinois and Indiana this December. Come check it out at an event near you.
