Brothers and Sisters,
Once again this year RI AFL-CIO and it’s member organizations have partnered with the P-Bruins to provide for 1/2 price tickets for Union members and to help raise money for big brothers big sisters of the ocean state.
This is a fun event with a portion of proceeds going to a great cause.
This years game is on April 12th @3:05PM at the Dunkin Donuts Center.

Rhode Island is in the midst of an epic winter. You can’t turn on the TV or listen to the radio without hearing the impact the severe winter storms are having on our schools, roads, economy, and strained city and town budgets. What you don’t hear is how this winter is impacting Rhode Island’s most vulnerable residents – the elderly and disabled. Last week an 84 year old man called Serve Rhode Island after being trapped in his house for 19 days by the snow and running out of food. There are hundreds of Rhode Islanders in need of assistance digging out from the snow and ice, and with more snow predicted for this weekend there will be hundreds more.
Serve Rhode Island’s Storm Assistance for the Elderly and Disabled (SAFE-D) has been doing tremendous work, but they need your help. Volunteers are needed for snow removal, telephone support, and transportation to help Rhode Islanders in need.

The Rhode Island labor movement has a strong connection to Serve RI with Council 94 president Michael Downey serving as the organizations Chair and Rhode Island Federation of Teachers and Health Professionals’ president Frank Flynn serving as vice-chair.
