OPEIU FAMILY, THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING CSA'S HOLIDAY BASKET PROJECT 2016!
A Note from Kathleen McKirchy
We could not do this without Local 2's help!
This year we had 15 adopted needy families, 10 food drives providing food baskets for 30 families, another $1500 donated; which provided gift cards to 35 additional needy clients and lots of wonderful holiday cheer spread around throughout our community by the Labor Movement!!
Thank you ALL for your hard work and generosity in helping CSA and Holiday Basket program a huge success!
If you or anyone who worked with you needs a tax deduction letter from CSA, please let me know names, amounts and where to send and I’ll get those out right after the holidays.
YOUR SUPPORT IS SINCERELY APPRECIATED AND THE HAPPIEST OF HOLIDAYS!
