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, we’ll showcase one of these stories every day. Here’s today’s story.
Members of the Charleston Central Labor Council, the South Carolina AFL-CIO, the Greater Charleston chapter of the A. Philip Randolph Institute and their community allies teamed up last Thursday to provide food relief for some dozens of union families in the Charleston, South Carolina, area. Labor council President April Lott (AFGE) said, “Today, we were able to serve approximately 100 families with meat, milk, cheese, fruits and vegetables.” Last week’s food relief distribution was the third of six such events planned in Charleston, and it was staged at the Longshoremen (ILA) Local 1422 hall.
