With its headquarters in downtown DC at 6th and F Streets, staff and members of the International Union of Bricklayers & Allied Craftworkers see hunger and homelessness on the streets of the nation’s capitol first-hand every day. That’s a big reason the Bricklayers participate in the Community Services Agency's Holiday Basket Program now underway. "It's about strengthening and uplifting our communities,” said IUBAC Executive Board Secretary Bobbie Haut last week when she and her colleagues Susan Flaherty and Mark Callis dropped off donations to CSA. "Unions' participation in the Holiday Basket Program is critical to our efforts to aid local families,” said CSA Executive Director Sonte DuCote. Unions and allies can participate by dropping off non-perishable canned and boxed food to CSA, collecting grocery store gift cards from union grocers or adopting a family by providing toys, clothing, etc. The deadline to participate is Friday, December 14th.
