TSA Support - Government Shut-Down
The Cape Coral Democratic Club participated in providing canned food, household and baby products for TSA employees, during the government shutdown. The “Shutdown Donation Drive” was initiated by Cape Coral's Local Union 2301 District Council 78, Richard Jones, President. Products were picked up by TSA employees at our meeting place in Cape Coral, IUPAT Union Hall, 1216 SW 4th Street.
TSA Agents, Phil Lore and Karen Moulon, attended February 16th meeting to thank our membership for our generous support in providing for their families in need. It was a pleasure to have met both agents. By being involved and meeting TSA employees personally, the impact of the shutdown on people's lives and their families becomes a 'reality' vs. just a news story. Though our Club is politically affiliated, caring about our local and Federal government's agenda affects each individual's livelihood. We are here to make our voices heard and to make a positive difference!
Thanks to everyone who participated!
