Christmas-Raffle[Update: Rob Ryan has generously donated $50 of his winnings to Feeding America. Thanks, Rob!]

Congratulations go to Rob Ryan, a Grand Rapids Uverse Premise Technician, who was the lucky winner in our Feeding America 50/50 Christmas Raffle. Thanks also go all the members who contributed both their money and their non-perishable food to the Feeding America program, which helps people right here at home in our own communities.

The generosity of our members and retirees amounted to $817, half of which was won by Rob Ryan. Our members and retirees also contributed many boxes of non-perishable food, which we will deliver to the Feeding America warehouse for distribution to those in need.

Feeding America is the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity. Their mission is to feed America’s hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engage our country in the fight to end hunger. Thanks to their extensive networking and extreme efficiency, they are able to provide 8 meals for just $1.

Interested in helping out? Food donations are always appreciated, as is volunteering. However, Feeding America’s large network of partners allows them to leverage your cash donations in significant ways, right here in our communities. Find out how to help by clicking here.

Thanks, CWA members and retirees. Your generosity while never surprising, is always amazing. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
