This is what we union thugs do in our union halls

We run a clothing drive for moms and kids who need clothes and shoes.

We'll let the Teamsters Local 743 Women's Committee describe what they're doing:
Members and supporters are encouraged to donate gently used women's clothing, kids' clothes and shoes to help disadvantaged mothers, girls and working families. Donations will be accepted through April at the Local 743 union hall every Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-noon and 3-5 p.m.
Donations can be dropped at Local 743, 4620 S. Tripp Avenue, Chicago, IL.

All clothing and shoe donations will benefit the Breakthrough Urban Ministries and the Pacific Garden Ministry located in Chicago.
Props to Valeska Coleman and Deidrie Jenkins of Local 743 for making it happen.

Oh and by the way, "thugs" stands for "Those Helpful Union Gals."
