For the second year the generosity of our Local came through with the delivery of shoes, socks, scarves, gloves, candy and more for the Rochester Veterans Transition Center (RVTC). These items will be used as stocking stuffers to give out to Veterans who have been down on their luck and need a helping hand. This year we engaged the retirees who are part of a knitting circle who worked tirelessly to make sure the Veterans were taken care of…a special thank you to Cris Zaffuto for leading the charge. The RVTC is a federally funded program that provides necessary life-saving services for Veterans in the Rochester and Monroe County area.

Big props go to Local 828 Women's Committee Chair Angela Muscianese for her organizing efforts and to Kathy Begemann & Local President Bess Watts for their assistance in delivering the gifts and provisions. A special shout out to the Public Defenders Office for going above and beyond with their donations.
The generosity of CSEA members (and retirees) never ceases to amaze. And a big THANK YOU to all our generous units for making this effort a huge success!
