USW Cares: Ringing the Bells Becomes a Tradition at USW Local 7687

Submitted by Corey Ingram

bell-ringingFor as many years, the members of United Steelworkers Local 7687 have set up and rang the bells for the Salvation Army outside of our plant gates and this year was no different. 

On December 14 volunteers “braved” the incredibly mild weathered day to collect donations for the Salvation Army. 

In total, the event collected $1,263.80, which is a record high for this tradition.

USW Local 7687 thanks all their union volunteers for giving their time and all the people who made contributions for their generous donations.

For those that might want to start this tradition at their own facilities, they can call their local Salvation Army office and ask for buckets and bells.

This project is just one of so many that the USW's amazing members do every day to give back to our communities. If you or your local is doing good things, we want to hear about it!
