Record Fund Raising for Children's Home Society
Feb 22, 2019

Dear Teamsters;

I just wanted to express our true gratitude and to let you know just how wonderful it is to be overwhelmed by the kindness, dedication, work, and true faithfulness of the our Teamsters.   Yesterday was beyond anything we could have imagined or hoped for.  The excitement builds as we all run out to see the big truck make a unbelievable turn in the middle of the highway  and then back into a narrow driveway, not once but twice, I don’t even know how they do that. 

The building is full to the brim, today is sorting and boxing up day.  Then the miracle of the Teamster Christmas begins as families receive much needed food and toys.  Over these many years now, the stories we have all got to be a part of is what we will always remember in the end.   Like the song played at the Veterans event, “You Can’t Make Old Friends” I am reminded that there is no one like the Teamsters, you were the first to ever help me when I was a struggling social worker trying to make a difference, and that is how we all became “Old Friends”.  We have made a lot of memories together.

Perhaps at your next meeting or otherwise when you see them please let them know they, each and every one, that to us they are true Christmas  Angels.  Scott Foley and his staff and volunteers are some happy folks this Sunday morning, there is much excitement here today, and as Scott has said many times the kids we help will never forget.  God Bless you all, Merry Christmas Kellie and all the gang.

Much love and big hugs!

Mary White, Children's Home Society

Donate to WV Children's Home Society
For many years, the members of this Local Union have contributed to and raised money for a local charity, West Virginia Children’s Home Society. CHS provides food and toys to families in need throughout West Virginia. Through generous donations, we were able to deliver 2 tractor trailers loaded with food, general household items as well as toys to a CHS location in Charleston. They then distributed the items to hundreds of families in WV. It was our biggest year yet. We estimated with donations and discounts, we delivered close to $50,000 in food and toys. We are reaching out to you again this year to see if you would like to participate by offering a monetary donation. Director, Scott Foley, has indicated this year has been just as challenging as last year. Their ability to hold fund raisers has been hampered because of the pandemic. Our members plan to shop for food/toys in December and your help is greatly appreciated.
