Union sets record in delivering food to families

Posted: Updated:
FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

A record number of food boxes are going out to families in need of assistance thanks to the UAW Local 598.

On Wednesday, union members delivered 304 baskets throughout the Flint area.

The Food Bank of Eastern Michigan filled the boxes, then gave them to the UAW to be handed out.

Members said this is a crucial aspect to being a part of the union, and one they enjoy very much.

"To show the community that you know people care. We care. We are the union with a heart Local 598. We want to make sure our community knows that we are here for them," said Jayne Atwell.

Each employee at the Flint Assembly Plant was allowed to refer one family for assistance.
