Union Brothers and Sisters/Fellow Delegates:
Greetings! The Community Services Committee of the Milwaukee Area Labor Council AFL-CIO is proud to announce its 2016 partnership with the AFL-CIO Department of Field Mobilization and St. Ben’s Community Meal Program in a compassionate community event Sunday, June 26th2016. The committee has agreed to coordinate the participation of the labor community in sponsoring and feeding the homeless and the hungry at St. Benedict the Moor (St. Ben’s Church), 1015 North 9th Street (9th and State) on Sunday, June 26th, beginning at 4:30 p.m.
In taking our turn on June 26th, we will be one of many different groups in a list of those who sponsor, providing meals on a regular basis to meet the needs of the thousands of people who go without food every day in our Greater Milwaukee Community. In order to serve our 500 to 600 guests, we will need a large supply of brats, buns, beans, potato salad, Hot Dogs, fresh fruit, and dessert. The food will be prepared by union members and designated volunteers. This means that we will need the support of Greater Milwaukee organized labor to assist with cash donations and volunteers to help serve our guests. We are requesting your financial donations, as soon as possible. Please make your charitable donation payable to the Labor Community@Work and send to 633 S. Hawley Road, Suite 110, Milwaukee, WI, 53214. We are also asking for volunteers to assist in serving our guests, while wearing something that identifies you as a union Brother or Sister. Please call Mike Balistriere at (414) 771-7070 ext 12 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or to confirm your volunteer support. We would appreciate your response by June 15th, using the bottom portion of this letter or E-mail email@example.com. We will keep you informed as we move forward.
Thank you for all you do.
Sheila Cochran, Secretary-Treasurer and Chief Operating Officer,
Milwaukee Area Labor Council AFL-CIO
