Good of the Order
Betty Welsh, Labor Engagement Manager United Way, WashTech, talked about using #FeedSnoco to involve everyone in The Letter Carriers Food Drive and the SCLC Peanut Butter Drive. Twitter your Brothers and Sisters about the opportunities to give.
The Letter Carrier Food Drive is May 14th, last year we collected 259 thousand pounds of food this year we are going for 265 thousand pounds of food. The more we involve our members and using #FeedSnoco is a great tool, the better the outcome.
Peanut Butter provides a great source of protein to the food banks and is their most requested item. Please bring your donation of Peanut Butter to the next meeting. Jif and Adams are Union makers of Peanut Butter, but our Union stores support the drive with other brands too.
