CHICAGO (WLS) -- Illinois Senator Dick Durbin was among 12,000 volunteers in Chicago helping a charity for children and adults with developmental disabilities.
The volunteers collected donations for misericordia and handed out candy Friday at Union Station.
This is the first of a two-day event across the Chicago area called Misericordia Candy Days 2015.
Last year's event raised over $1 million.
