Every year the AFT Local 2373 provides Rowan students coffee, hot chocolate and cookies.
Here are a few selfies of students saying thank you.
The American Federation of Teachers (AFT) of Rowan University is holding a drive for its holiday project: collecting new hats, gloves and books for 102 children, ages three (3) to five (5), to benefit the Glassboro HeadStart Center.
Please drop off unwrapped donations to the site coordinators listed below by Dec. 9th. AFT reps will deliver the items Dec. 15th and 16th.
You also may bring contributions to the AFT table at the University Holiday Luncheon on Dec. 9th.
If you have a donation but can’t make it to a donation site, you are welcome to drop it in an interoffice box or envelope and forward it to Lori Block, 301 West High Street, Room 213.
As always, thank you for your generosity!
The Community Awareness Committee of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) will be hosting an Outreach Table at the Pitman Craft Fair on Saturday, May 14th from 8 am to 4 pm. This craft fair is a regional draw and vendors get much exposure; thousands of people attend this event. Our participation will be to enhance the image of the union and to create good will in our community as we negotiate our contract.
WE NEED YOUR HELP! WE NEED VOLUNTEERS THAT DAY; from assembling in the morning and setting up the tent to working the day giving out AFT bags and working the Children’s Station to tearing down the tent that evening.
Everyone’s assistance is needed… even if you can only donate an hour of your time that day! Every bit helps!
Set up begins at 8-8:30 am, the fair begins at around 9 am and concludes at 4pm.
Email me at Block@rowan.edu your time of availability or how you would like to help that day (i.e. put up the tent and tables/ or take down the tent and tables or “person” the table).
Thank you for your continued support!
Chair, AFT Community Awareness Committee
