UFCW 247 Women’s Committee brings Christmas baking to women's shelter

Earlier this week, members of the UFCW Local 247 Women's Committee spent the day at a women's shelter doing Christmas baking with and for the women and their children residing there. (Pictured l-r are Sandra Peters, Kathleen Allen, and Dawn Stevenson)

The UFCW 247 Women’s Committee takes on activities that make a difference in the day-to-day lives of women, and UFCW 247 members are invited to join and/or participate. 

The Women’s Committee does work in the community that involves much more than simply helping out women in the union. Among the Committee’s efforts:

  • we prepare emergency kits to provide basic necessities to help those in trouble for 72 hours;
  • coordinate the annual Shoe Memorial each December;
  • BBQs;
  • baking events;
  • International Women’s Day events;
  • donations to Women’s Shelters;
  • donations to homeless shelters, and much more…

Women’s rights are an important issue for the union, and having an active Women’s Committee whose goal is to help people makes a positive difference in peoples lives, often at a time when they most need it.

Any members interested in participating in the UFCW 247 Women’s Committee can contact Tima Dickerson at the union office, or email tdickerson@ufcw247.com   

Current members of the Women's Committee include Cathy Maw, Kathleen Allen, Sandra Peters, Dawn Stevenson, Cathy Shannon, and Tima Dickerson (chair).
