Local News

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA) — One man was honored Friday night for his work in the community.

Ceasar Perez was awarded this year’s Community Builder by the Masonic Lodge. Perez is the director of the area’s Toys for Tots.

For the past 15-years, he has helped give children in need a Christmas when they otherwise wouldn’t have one. He’s out in the cold every year for an annual Toys for Tots Drive.

He says he doesn’t do the work for recognition and adds anyone can go out and help their community.

The lodge also recognized passmasters of the fraternity and masons who have done individual outstanding work in the past year.
