Last month, we held our 3rd Annual Mid-Year School Supply Drive to provide Boston teachers and families with the school supplies that children need to finish the school year strong.
Together, alongside community-focused leaders and organizations, we showed up in solidarity to donate over $10,000 in supplies to ensure that our students receive the support they need year-round.
Thank you again to everyone who donated, volunteered, and showed up to support our community. The drive’s great success is all thanks to the commitment, generosity, and hard work of our members and allies.
In honor of National Women in Construction Week, Local 7 is proud to celebrate the many skilled women building our region whether it be on top of Boston skyscrapers or over bridges in Maine.
Please join us in recognizing our building trades sisters across the region for their outstanding work including our very own Jessica Devance who was recently featured in The Enterprise. On behalf of Local 7, Happy Women in Construction Week!
The countdown has begun for the Local 7 Next Committee’s 3rd Annual School Supply Drive which will provide thousands of dollars in supplies to students, families, and educators!
We’re so close to our $10,000 goal and hope to work together to make 2023 the best year yet. We’re looking forward to being joined by Boston City Councilors Tania Fernandes Anderson, Ruthzee Louijeune, and Julia Mejia as well as the Boston Union Trade Sisters, Building Pathways, The BASE and many more supporters.
As we kick off the new year, Local 7 is proud to announce the Next Committee’s 3rd Annual School Supply Drive to help students, families, and educators have a successful year!
Since 2021, we have reached over 1,000 people and collected more than $9,000 in supplies. We hope to make this year the best one yet and are seeking donations ahead of the drive on February 25. Each dollar and item will ensure that the school year goes a little smoother for those living in our communities.
To donate, please download this form or stop by the union hall. Thank you for your contributions!
