Hello brothers & sisters,
Were just about two weeks from Open House for the children at “Renaissance West STEAM Academy.” We are still looking for school supplies to fill the bags or a monetary donation can be made.
We’ll start filling bags the week of Aug 20th for any member interested in helping. I’ll have times for the week at Thursday’s Noon Business Meeting.
Let’s make this project a BIG SUCCESS!!!

I have published a letter to our members and Districts with information about our support of Renaissance West Steam Academy. Please take a moment to read the letter and support this effort if you are able.
The letter can be found Here and will be posted on the homepage for a few weeks.
Thank you for your support!!

The Womens Human Rights Committee is in need of non perishable food items for the students of Renaissance West. Many only eat at school and spring break is around the corner. Let us show our generosity and provide food for after school.
Contact Helena Thornton, Renae Miller, Lisa Leathers, Kat Romo or Anita Thomas. Donations accepted at work and the Local until 3/27.

The holiday season is often time for family and giving to those that are less fortunate. With that being said the Young Workers Committee of Local 1725 out of Charlotte, NC, asked the Women’s/Human Rights Committee to team up and volunteer at Operation Christmas Child.
Every year Samaritan’s Purse coordinates Operation Christmas Child which sends shoeboxes of gifts to third world countries. This can only be completed thanks in large part to hundreds of volunteers each year. Last year in Charlotte alone, 2.4 million shoeboxes were processed through Samaritan’s Purse largest warehouse. This year the goal is 2.5 million
The Women’s/Human Rights Committee would like to give you the chance to win a $50 Gift Card… Just in time for Thanksgiving!
How would you use the $50? Maybe a big, fat turkey on the table? Or maybe you’ll use it towards a little weekend getaway during the holidays?
However you decide to use the $50 Visa Gift Card you won’t have an opportunity to win unless you attend the November 9th Monthly Union Meeting at the Local Lodge. So why not come check out a meeting and learn more about your Local and everything it’s doing for you. … Read More...

In December the Women’s/Human Rights and Young Workers Committees sponsored three families in our Season Of Giving. We would like to share an exert from a text from one of the recipients:
“I was shocked! It helped so much. I was able to get groceries, pay some bills and get a load of wood. If you can, tell them thank you for the love and kindness. I didn’t know how to thank them as depressed as I’ve been. It cheered me up and lifted my spirits. With not being able to do much and no one to talk to and … Read More...
