This holiday season our union is holding a Toy Drive to give back to children in need. To successfully pull this off, we need your help!

The toys will be donated to Local 117 families who are struggling this year. All remaining toys will go to Treehouse for Kids, a local non-profit that works with foster children.

Can you commit some time to collect toys in your shop?  

If you can help, please email Taylor House at [email protected] with your name, email, current phone number, and day you will be able to come pick up your donation box.  

You can pick up your box and flyers promoting the Toy Drive at the union hall between Wednesday, Nov. 15 and Friday, Nov. 17.  From there, you place the boxes in your designated break areas so your co-workers can donate. The boxes will need to be returned to the hall by Friday, December 15.

This deadline ensures we can get the gifts to Local 117 families and deliver excess toys to Treehouse for Kids in time for disbursement. For last minute donations, we will also be collecting toys during our Thursday, December 21 Holiday Membership Meeting.

Thank you for all of your hard work on the shop floor. Let's work together to help our communities this holiday season!
