USW Cares: Local 9265 Adopts Families Affected by AIDS in New York

Every year, USW LUSW Local 9265 members adopted families at the North Eastern New York AIDS Council.ocal 9265 in Eastern New York participates in the Adopt-A-Family program for the holidays. This year, led by the local's Women's Committee chaired by member Tara Bentley, members joined with the AIDS Council of North Eastern New York's Holiday Sponsor Program to help families affected by AIDS or HIV. Local 9265 sponsored four families, donating more than 80 gifts ranging from necessities such as winter coats and boots to toys for children.

This project is just one of so many USW's amazing members do every day to give back to our communities. If you or your local are doing good things in your community, we want to hear about them. Let us know and share video and photos at and use the #USWCares hashtag when you post your stories on social media. Don't forget to shout out @Steelworkers!
