Your extra winter coats, hats, scarves, gloves and boots can go a long way toward giving the gift of warmth to family, friends and neighbors in need here in our jurisdiction.

Holiday Food Drive


Please help Local 26 with our annual food drive to support the Capital Area Food Bank. The Capital Area Food Bank serves nearly 500,000 area residents in our jurisdiction, distributed 30 million pounds of food last year and serves 2.1 million meals each month. Much of their ability to provide for those in need relies on the generosity of organizations such as our own Local 26. Please bring your non-perishable food items to any Local 26 office November 14th through December 19th. Monetary donations will also be accepted. All donations are greatly appreciated!
