Working people across the United States have stepped up to help out our friends, neighbors and communities during these trying times. In our regular Service + Solidarity Spotlight series, weâ€™ll showcase one of these stories every day. Hereâ€™s todayâ€™s story.
Members of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 103 in Boston came together over the weekend to hold their annualÂ toy driveÂ for kids and families in need. The union credited Mayor Martin Walsh (LIUNA) and all of the donors and volunteers who made the event possible. â€śThank you so much, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, the IBEW Local 103 volunteers and everyone that donated to our annual Christmas toy drive! Iâ€™m so proud of Local 103,â€ť said local Business Manager/Financial Secretary Louis Antonellis.
