In Brandon, Miss., members of UAW Local 2402 last month spearheaded several fundraisers to buy presents for children who were facing slim holidays. They also have pitched in with Habitat for Humanity to build new homes for victims of Hurricane Katrina. Local Vice President Tracey Daniels says:
Our local is always joining in with the local community to help and give back to those in times of need and those less fortunate.
Local 2402′s story is one of several new member-submitted stories and profiles that are part of the UAW’s new interactive website and ad campaign—I am the UAW—launched last month.
