(LANSING, Mich.) — Members from IBEW Local 665 and NECA Lansing Division pitched in to help with Tri-County TRIAD’s No Senior Without Christmas project at Lansing’s Fire Station #8 on Dec. 6.
The annual program provides boxes of household supplies, non-perishable food and holiday cheer to 350 impoverished seniors living in Ingham, Clinton
In addition to sending members to help stuff boxes, IBEW 665 and NECA Lansing Division donated funds and provided vests for volunteers.
Noting that there are many seniors on this year’s list who haven’t received gifts or visits in as many as seven years, Ruiz said: “I hope you know that the fruits of your labor do not go unnoticed.”
“The stories that I heard today tugged at my heart,” said IBEW 665 Business Manager Tom Eastwood. “We believe a community grows stronger when we serve and uplift each other, and there are seniors right here in our neighborhoods who are in desperate need of help around the holiday season.”
