Local 24 Women Mobilize for Homeless Vets
For two months members of the SMART Local #24 Women’s Committee and SMART Army collected personal care items to put care packages together for homeless Veterans. We had collection boxes at all Union Halls and many of the contractor’s shops for members to donate items and or cash. Several contractor’s pitched in and made cash contributions, which allowed us to purchase items still needed to fill the bags.
On Friday, November 1, 2019, members of the SMART Local #24 Women’s Committee and SMART Army got together to put the care packages together. We ended up with 108 care packages total, 78 men’s and 30 women’s.
Friday, November 8, the care packages were delivered to the VA Community Outreach Center in Cincinnati, Ohio, to be delivered to homeless veterans.
