On Nov. 22, Local 338 RWDSU/UFCW delivered over 200 turkeys, donated by union members and union-staffed supermarkets, to several food pantries and charitable organizations throughout the metropolitan area as part of the union’s annual turkey drive.

The pantries receiving the turkeys included the one at Our Lady of Grace in Howard Beach and will go to help area families, some of whom are still struggling after Hurricane Sandy 13 months ago. The pantry itself was also damaged in the storm.

A volunteer from OLG’s food pantry, left, is seen here accepting the turkeys from Local 338 staff members Joseph Fontano and Nikki Kateman, joined by Kevin Sullivan, a representative from state Sen. Joe Addabbo Jr.’s office.

Welcome to the discussion.
