USW Cares: Local 13-522 Adopts Local Families in Community

Chalmette, LA

Submitted by Dianne Babin

The members of United Steelworkers Local 13-522 at PBF in Chalmette, Louisiana collected over $5000 this Christmas to help local families in their community.   Donations were collected and gifts delivered to over 30 children and families.  The families were also given a bible and a gift card to purchase their Christmas meal.

This has been an annual event for the Local for the past several years.  Through the generosity of our members, we were able to make Christmas brighter for those in need in our community.
