GRTC and the Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU), Local 1220, join every Holiday season to donate food boxes to members of our community in need. This year, the combined donations from GRTC and Union employees enabled 56 food boxes to be prepared today.
Each food box contains all the ingredients for a full Holiday feast, including a turkey, sides, condiments and dessert. All the food was purchased with donations from GRTC and Union employees.
GRTC Chief Executive Officer Julie Timm says, “Sharing Holiday meals with our neighbors in need is just one of the many ways I know our GRTC Family members continually and generously give back to our community year-round.”
ATU Local 1220 Vice President Maurice Carter, says, “The Union is proud to partner with GRTC on this annual tradition, and we appreciate those willing and able to give to this important community effort.”
Holiday food boxes were loaded onto a GRTC bus and distributed to individuals identified by Social Services this afternoon.
From our entire GRTC family to yours, we wish you safe and Happy Holidays.
