Adopt-A-Striker: Local 294 Thank You!

A big thank you to all of our members who contributed to the Adopt-A-Striker campaign that was held for Local 294. We were able to purchase numerous gift cards for the family. Thank you for your part in making this Christmas a special one for this striker and his family.


Our gift was well received. The family we ‘adopted’ was so thankful and grateful.

The fundraisers were also able to give each person a filled stocking through the generous donations that they received.
