Council 4 Toy Drive
L_R: ULA's Casey Cornwell and Kim Burton; Council 4's Sal Luciano and Peggy Badolato.
Our union collected hundreds of toys and an additional $1,565 in gift cards, all of which was donated to the Rocky Hill-based United Labor Agency (ULA), which assists union members and all workers and their families facing hardship.
ULA Representatives Kim Burton and Kasey Cornwell accepted the donation from Council 4 Executive Director Sal Luciano and Financial Coordinator Peggy Badolato, who organized the Toy Drive.
"The holidays are a particularly challenging time for families and children dealing with the consequences of a job loss, financial distress, or serious illness," said ULA Executive Director Amy Blackwood. "We appreciate the generous and caring spirit displayed by Council 4 members and staff, and the entire labor movement, as we head into 2016.”
Council 4 Executive Director Sal Luciano serves as Administrative Vice President on the ULA Board of Directors. ULA Board members also include Kit Salazar-Smith of AFSCME Local 562, Peter Thor of Council 4 and retired Council 4 staff representative Betty Kuehnel.
“The United Labor Agency does wonderful work that benefits all our communities,” Luciano said. “I encourage Council 4 members to learn more about the good work of the ULA and to support this amazing agency in any way possible.”
