Today, November 20, the ILWU put on the 21st Annual Feed the Community Day, handing out Thanksgiving meals to over 1500 needy families in the Harbor area.

Local 63 Vice President Mike Ponce and Secretary Mike Carranza were on hand to assist, along with Local 63 Member, Mickey Rivers and Local 63 Retiree and Southern California Pensioners Group Officer, Jerry Garretson, who worked alongside CA State Assemblyman (AD-70), Patrick O’Donnell with the task of putting together Thanksgiving meal packets and handing them out to the needy families.

ILWU Local 63 is proud to carry on this worthy, annual tradition.
