|Biddeford Public Works Food Drive|
Teamsters Local 340 Biddeford Public Works Employees collected 1/2 ton of food for a local area food bank.
"The did a good job, they filled the need that exists after the holiday" said Terrence J. Hanlon, Secretary-Treasurer of Local 340.
In December the members asked the coordinators, of the friends of Community Action Food Bank, when they most needed food. Food Bank officials said the need is especially great after the holidays when shelves become bare.
The Teamster employees of Biddeford Public Works went to work. Two members even brought their sons along to collect food door to door and from area businesses. They spent December 15th and 22nd collecting the 980 lbs of food and money. The members presented the food and money to the Food Bank on January 3, 2002.
The Teamsters and its members at Biddeford Public Works department wish to thank all who supported their efforts.
