We collect food and clothing for the needy, even after we've retired from our jobs. Because we still haven't retired from our union.
The Retiree Chapter of Local 118 in Rochester, N.Y., is collecting food and clothing for poor families. Under the leadership of Gino Arilotta, the retirees will hold their 15th annual food and clothing drive from Oct. 7-16. All the food and clothing will be taken to the Unified Mission in Rochester.
That's not all the retirees from Local 118 do, by the way. They volunteer at hospitals and nursing homes, deliver "Meals on Wheels," participate in the "Adopt-A-Highway" program, sponsor youth sports teams and support the Rochester
Thugs Teamsters Charity Foundation.
