Today in Western Pennsylvania, USW local union leaders from Beaver County, area ministers and other community leaders and former Pittsburgh Steelers player and current analyst Edmund Nelson handed out free school supplies to area children. The school supply drive was part of the union's efforts to help our communities in these tough economic times.
Hundreds of children lined up to get a free USW back packed filled with paper, pencils, crayons and other supplies at Aliquippa Elementary School. The event was open to children from any school and the union will donate the remaining supplies to other Beaver County area districts. Click here for more on the USW's many community service efforts.
