From the SIU-affiliated Maritime Trades Department, AFL-CIO.
The COVID pandemic could not keep the holiday spirit of helping others in need from the members of the Greater South Florida Maritime Trades Council.
In the week before Christmas, PMC Vice President Kris Hopkins along with members of the Seafarers International Union delivered hundreds of new toys and games to Lifenet for Families of Fort Lauderdale.
“We have been doing this for about 10 years,” Hopkins said. “We may not have collected as much as we might have because of COVID, but the people at Lifenet were very appreciative.”
Representatives from the Port Council’s 10 affiliates dropped off gifts at the Seafarers Port Everglades hall throughout the fall. “Our hats are off to all who participated,” Hopkins added.
