On December 30, 2017 Ohio IBEW Local Union's 71, 212,1224, and 1347 volunteered with Matthew 25 Ministries in Cincinnati, Ohio. The Local's planned in advance to meet and work as a group to sort and prepare items for distribution by Matthew 25. Matthew 25 provides clothing, personal care items, books and educational materials for individuals and families across the country who have had their lives interrupted by natural disasters and tragedies. Local 1347 spearheaded the effort, members from the different local's stepped up and participated in the large group pictured above. Local 1347 will be planning another multi-local volunteer project later this year, details will be posted when available.
