Medical Equipment Program

One thing continues for our club, and that is our medical supply closet for our members. Although only staff are allowed in the Hall, we were fortunate to have bought a sea container for additional space to store equipment. Now we use that as a place to transfer items to members. The need for medical equipment does not stop!

Contact Susan Flashman at flashmanbissell@aol.com or 301-277-5823 to donate or check out medical equipment.

 Check out the article from the International's Electrical Worker on our Medical Equipment Program.

Operation Paperback

Want to know how you can help our troops serving overseas? Participate in Operation Paperback through Local 26’s Retirees’ Club and send our servicemen and women books they can enjoy as a small respite from the intensity of their work. Operation Paperback is a non-profit organization that started in 1999 that sends new or gently used books to service members stationed overseas. Unfortunately, some military bases have no recreation activities in which our troops can unwind from their day. This is why the gift of books has become so important to many of our soldiers.
By registering with the program, the Retirees’ Club has access to the type of books the soldiers are interested in and is able to package up books of a specific genre to send to a specific soldier. This makes the process very personal since soldiers are receiving packages with books specifically chosen for them.

If you would like to help Local 26’s Retirees’ Club in their efforts to support Operation Paperback, please call Susan Flashman at 301-277-5823. Please, no romance novels. All other genres, fiction or non-fiction, are greatly appreciated.
