Your Union is about bringing people together and creating a strong unified voice for working families. Teamsters 117 is also committed to building stronger communities. In that spirit, a group of 14 Teamsters volunteered for several hours on April 16 as a part of the Emergency Food Network's (EFN) Volunteer Repack Project.
EFN is the primary food distributor to more than 60 emergency food sites in Pierce County. To get this food distributed to the individuals and families in need, EFN enlists volunteers to help repackaging fresh, frozen, and dry bulk foods into smaller, family-sized portions.
If you would like to volunteer for future EFN efforts to help feed families in need, give us a call at 206-441-4860. Through May 12, Teamsters 117 is also sponsoring a Peanut Butter Drive to help feed hungry kids in Pierce County.
If you would like to participate or for more information, talk to your Shop Steward or Business Rep.
