    Local looks to rich history to help homeless veterans

     

    Bean soup was a staple when the Flint sit-down strikers successfully took on General Motors in 1936 and 1937.

     

    It was a staple for UAW Local 602 recently when it took on the problem of homeless veterans. Local 602, which represents workers at the Lansing, Michigan-Delta Township Assembly plant, held a bean soup fundraiser for the Volunteers of America homeless veterans program.

     

    The fundraiser, which raised $725, was held on White Shirt Day, February 11, the day UAW members and labor movement supporters honor the sit-down strikers.

     

    There was plenty of local media at the event, but that’s not why UAW members do what they do. The UAW has always had a strong veterans' program, including organizing veterans’ stand-downs to raise money and needed items for veterans’ hospitals and helping to build two homes for families at the VFW National Home for Children in Eaton Rapids, Michigan.

    Great work Local 373!
