The Community Services Committee shall be responsible for obtaining assistance
for members and their families in time of need by working through public and private
agencies to ensure that members in emergency situations get the help they need.

The Community Service Committee is here to educate and encourage our members
to be involved in bettering our local areas. 

We help run the community service drives, day of caring, and food collections among other things. 

We help run the community service drives, day of caring, and food collections among other things.  We are also a point of contact for employees who need some assistance during an emergency.

During the fall we can certainly use help during the presentations handing out information and setting up, and year round would like to encourage our members to find ways to volunteer and give to local community groups.

PRESIDENT WILLIAM E. LOUIS NAMED BOARD CHAIRMAN OF
UNITED WAY IN JANUARY OF 2020

Hello Members and all concerned,

As we know, due to the COVID-19 crisis many have been affected
and are out of work;  The need for food donations is greater than ever.
The Gemma E. Moran/United Way Labor Food Bank is experiencing a
huge loss of food donations because of many factors, including much
lower donations from food collections and benefactors such as super-
markets, who generously donate great quantities of food each week
and are restricted by fears of spreading the virus.

The Food Bank now has to purchase food directly from sources and
could use our help!  Our members and EB employees in general have
shown their generosity throughout the years; if you would like to donate
to the Food Center, there is a link below which will
take you directly to a
green "Donate" button. Thanks for all you do!
