Public Employee PressActivists back Holiday Giving drive
Members of the Political Action Committee of Local 1549's Police Administrative Clerical Chapter collected $555 among themselves and donated the money to fill Santa's sack with toys for the children of needy union families. In the photo, PAC Chair Arlene Thomas and activists are presenting their contribution for DC 37's annual Holiday Giving program, which on Dec. 5 helped make the season brighter with a party and gifts for more than 200 families hit hard by the tough economic times.
"I am very proud of the generous union spirit shown by these members," said Local 1549 President Eddie Rodriguez. "We in Local 1549 may not have a lot, but we are always ready to share with those who are less fortunate."
