Local 769 in the Community

Teamsters don’t just fight for improvements or equality in the workplace, they are also active within their communities to make life a little better for all.

A few years back, a program was started in Key West to collect food for those in need where the food collected would stay entirely within the Key West area. Thanks to the efforts of members and stewards from the City of Key West, Monroe County, UPS and Monroe County Sheriff’s Office we received the following message of thanks for doing what Teamsters do.

“Last year with the help of groups like the Teamsters, we were able to serve 4,609 meals to the homeless, provide 40 families with emergency food, and service 1,211 men and women (children not included).”, said Sgt. Kevin Bickford. “Thank you for all you do!”

More opportunities for Teamsters to pitch in are always being discussed and made available at our monthly General Membership Meetings like the following.

The local will pick up the cost for the first 10 volunteers who will have the opportunity to work at the 2015 WGC-Cadillac Championship at Doral benefitting the United Way. This applies to members and their children 13 years old and above. Children over 13 will receive community service credit for school and perks also include event entry for attending as a spectator and a FREE round of golf during the summer. See the following flyer and contact the local if you are interested in helping out.  Call (305)642-6255
