Representatives from the AFL-CIO's departments gathered recently to learn about the United Way and it's online giving platform. They’ll be coordinating the United Way Giving Campaign for the labor federation’s headquarters and offices around the country. "I'm excited to work with my colleagues who step up every year to engage their coworkers in our United Way campaign and play a critical role in ensuring the campaign's success!" said AFL-CIO National Community Engagement United Way Program Coordinator Yael Foa. Last year, AFL-CIO staff raised $37,000 to support non-profits in their communities. "This is a great way to support organizations with values aligned with labor like the Community Services Agency of the Metro Washington Council, the only labor-sponsored agency in the Metro Washington area." said CSA Executive Director Sonte DuCote. The campaign will go from Monday, April 22 through Monday, May 6.
