Here are the news items of interest to Teamsters for this week, September 2-8, 2017.
We just loved the photo of Brother Ron Cobb getting a hug from a little girl. Her Oklahoma City neighborhood had been damaged by a tornado. Brother Cobb is president of Teamsters Local 886, and he'd been distributing relief supplies to storm victims with 10 volunteers from the local last week. Along with the rakes, batteries and diapers provided by the Red Cross, Teamsters Local 886 filled bags with sweets from Kellogg's (a Teamster employer) and handed those out, too. A photographer was there and got the shot.
...we do everything we can to help them get back on their feet.
Our brothers and sisters at Teamsters Local 886 in Oklahoma City have cleared debris, loaded trucks with emergency supplies, raised money, given cash cards to members who've lost everything and handed out diapers, rakes and flashlights -- as well as bags of sweets from Teamster employer Kellogg's.
(UPDATES to add volunteer in final graf.)
Teamsters are putting their hearts and their muscle into helping Oklahoma City recover from a series of miles-wide tornadoes that shattered communities and killed dozens of their neighbors.
Today, Teamsters from Local 886 are driving emergency supplies from a Red Cross warehouse to suburban neighborhoods devastated by the storms.
