UNION CARPENTERS, CONTRACTORS DELIVER TOYS
The New York City & Vicinity District Council of Carpenters and the Carpenter Contractor
Alliance of Metropolitan New York delivered over 300 toys to kids and 500 turkeys to families
throughout the Bronx this holiday season. Partnering with local elected offi cials and
community organizations, the union carpenters and contractors of New York participated in
three toy drives and one turkey drive throughout the Bronx in addition to events across all
fi ve boroughs. As COVID-19 has upended the lives of so many in New York City, union carpenters
and contractors do their part to give back. Holiday toy drives in the Bronx were done
in partnership with local non-profi ts and agencies, Eastchester Heights Community Center
and NYCHA, and elected offi cials, including Senator Jamaal Bailey and Assembly Members
Nathalia Fernandez, Carl Heastie and Karines Reyes. Across New York City, union carpenters
participated in ten toy drives and one turkey drive in an effort to alleviate stress on families
this holiday season and to spread holiday cheer. The annual toy drives come after the New
York City & Vicinity District Council of Carpenters and the Carpenter Contractor Alliance of
Metropolitan New York teamed up last month to deliver turkeys, food and other goods to
families in need for Thanksgiving. “Union carpenters and contractors have seen fi rst-hand
how hard this year has been on the people of New York City. That’s why we felt it was so
important this year especially to be out there giving back to our local communities this
holiday season,” stated Executive Secretary-Treasurer Joseph Geiger. “We have the best
members and they’re happy to be out in the Bronx, working with our partners to help make
the holidays a bit brighter for folks.”
