Lets Give Back!

Posted September 8, 2023

Over the last few weeks we have seen lots of requests for help in our communities. As the children return back to school we have seen a real need for school supplies. As the weather changes the need for winter clothes, food and housing has really increased. One of the biggest joys that I see is when I get the chance to help people in need. The VAC program is a great opportunity to give back to our communities and help promote DC16 and your Local Union. Some more events that will be coming up will be the Winters Wild West Dance, Run to Feed the Hungry and making Strides for Breast Cancer. We really need to make sure we get our membership out to support all of these events.

Please go to the DC16 Website “Get Involved” tab and look at the VAC calendar to see what events are coming up!

Last please try to attend your next Local Union meeting!
