A Helping Hand This Holiday Season

IBEW Local 26 was busy this December collecting food and charitable donations to benefit S.O.M.E. (So Others Might Eat) in Washington, D.C. Collected donations totaled over $8,000 worth of food. Generous contributions were provided by IBEW Local 26, day and night school students of the JATC and holiday party donations from Local 26 members. Electrical Alliance contractor C3M Power Systems LLC contributed cash, as well as food donations; and, Perlectric., Inc, another Electrical Alliance contractor, donated Giant Food gift cards. IBEW Local 26 has held an annual holiday food drive since 2008.

 

S.O.M.E. is an interfaith, community-based organization that exists to help the poor and homeless of the nation’s capital. They meet the immediate daily needs of the people served with food, clothing, and healthcare. S.O.M.E. helps break the cycle of homelessness by offering services, such as affordable housing, job training, addiction treatment, and counseling, to the poor, the elderly, and individuals with mental illness. Each day, SOME is restoring hope and dignity one person at a time.
