Union collects candy for community Halloween party
SEATTLE — Machinists Union District Lodge 751 is once again doing its part to make Halloween sweeter for disadvantaged children in the White Center neighborhood.
Union members and people in the community can drop off donations of unopened, individually wrapped candy at any IAM 751 union hall — including the Seattle Union Hall at 9125 15th Place S. in South Park — through Wednesday, Oct. 28. (For a list of union-made candy, click here.)
Last year, District 751 collected more than 400 pounds of candy for the Halloween party, which meant enough was left over to provide treats for the Salvation Army’s annual Christmas party as well.
Originally formed in 1935 by hourly workers at the Boeing Co., District Lodge 751 of the International Association of Machinists & Aerospace Workers now represents more than 33,000 working men and women at 52 employers across Washington and California.
