913 Giving Back

Posted January 17, 2023

Local 913’s VAC coordinator Lajeana Thompson organized the Sunnydale Holiday Calibration last month for Christmas, a community event aimed to bring people together and give back to the community.  Food was served to all in attendance, music through the event, games, and stockings were made with socks and gloves to be given to the less fortunate.

Our local does events like this throughout the year with a reoccurring event happening every month on the Third Tuesday at the Menlo Park Cal Train Station, where we team up with Street Life Ministries to feed hot meals to the unhoused while they listen to a Preacher do a sermon. This event is a VAC and a good one to bring the whole family out to. For more information on the Street Life Ministries VAC contact the local, and for more information on VAC’s throughout the year, check the VAC calendar on the website or come to the Local Membership Meeting on the first Wednesday of every month.

DC16 will be hosting a Town Hall meeting Wednesday January 18th  to go over your annuity and explain in detail the John Handcock mobile app, with a Spanish meeting at 4:00pm and English at 5:00pm. If you cannot make it in person both meetings will be broadcasted on Zoom. Contact the local for the Zoom Link.
