Local 24 Food Drive Completed!

Local 24’s food drive for those affected by the government shutdown was a resounding success. Over 97 pounds of food and non-perishable items were collected and donated to the Capital Area Food Bank. Good Job and thank you to all who donated.

Local 24 is planning on being involved in more community outreach activities throughout the year. If you have ideas or want to be involved, talk to your shop steward or contact the E-Board at iamawlocal24@gmail.com
