One of our Local 440 members brought attention to the organ donor need in Indiana and across the nation. Currently, 123,000 men, women, and children are waiting for an organ transplant. In the March 2016 UA Journal, 563 members received a burial benefit. Thousands of people could have been helped from those members alone. What a difference we could make in our country if we put on a national campaign to register our brotherhood and to challenge other labor unions to do the same! 22 people die every day waiting for a transplant. Please don't let another day go by without making the promise to be an organ donor. To be a donor, just click on the banner below.
"I live at my grandmother's old house where there is a big old walnut tree in the backyard. When I was young we could gather the nuts for the best brownies and cookies around. The old tree is dying now. I'm going to have to cut her down, but underneath it I noticed a few new trees growing. It's nature's way of giving new life! We could learn from this!"
