Machinists Union, Auburn Union Hall conduct food drive
April 7, 2010 · 3:19 PM
The union for Machinists at Boeing is conducting a food drive in April, to benefit the Puget Sound Labor Agency’s efforts to help feed unemployed workers and their families.
People can donate cash or non-perishable food at any union hall operated by the International Association of Machinists District 751, including the Auburn Union Hall, which is at 201 A St. SW.
During the April food drive, every dollar donated or every pound of food will be matched by a donation from the Feinstein Foundation, a Rhode Island-based non-profit that’s dedicated to wiping out hunger.
All the food and money collected will go to benefit the Puget Sound Labor Agency food bank, which provides food to unemployed workers from across Puget Sound. District 751’s Women’s Committee is spearheading the drive. Committee members say they’re particularly in need of canned food, whole-wheat pasta, oatmeal, baby food and baby formula.
