The United Steelworkers and Variety: The Children's Charity

On June 6, 2017, the USW in partnership with Variety the Children’s Charity and their “My Voice” program presented two Steelworker families with high-tech devices that will help their children express themselves.

Providing these devices "is something that we can do that really changes the lives of our members and their families,” said USW International President Leo W. Gerard. #USWCares
