We want to thank our union family for all of their hard work and dedication to serving their communities this busy holiday season! You make the holidays happen.
We also would like to recognize the compassion and generosity of all who helped contribute to our annual Thanksgiving and Toy Drives this holiday season. This year, we were able to assist 326 families in need for our Food Drive, and 229 families including 404 children through our Toy Drive. Through our 50/50 raffle, we raised $16,515, offering the winner of the raffle $8,257.50! The raffle is essential for raising funds to benefit our Members Helping Members programs and we thank Local 328 shop stewards and members for doing an amazing job each year helping to sell tickets.
Additionally, in marking the 16th annual tradition of giving back to the East Providence community, UFCW Local 328 Secretary-Treasurer Domenic Ponteralli and Organizing Director Miguel Santos, joined Mayor Bob DaSilva, the East Providence Democratic Committee, and team members from Shaw’s, to provide 80 turkeys to families in need this holiday season. Many thanks to all involved in keeping this tradition going strong!
We wish everyone a happy and healthy holiday season!
