USW Cares: SOAR Members in District 12 Donate to Help the Homeless

On December 11, at a SOAR luncheon in Pueblo, CO., retirees were asked to bring new socks to donate to a homeless shelter and ended up with over 200 pairs. Over 100 retirees attended the wonderful event. Credit and thank you for arranging this event goes to Joel Buchanan, Georgina Daffin and Al Becco.

The following day was the USW Local 2012 Christmas Party and they expected to be collecting more food and items for locked-out members at ATI in Albany.

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!
