Joint Council 25 Semi-Tractor/Trailer Containing Much Needed Disaster Relief Supplies Departed from St. Louis to a Transfer Station facility located in Fayetteville North Carolina to Assist Members of the Community Impacted by Hurricane Florence
On Thursday, September 27, 2018 Teamsters Joint Council 25 loaded a semi-tractor trailer with relief supplies to assist members of various communities adversely affected by the devastation caused by Hurricane Florence in North Carolina. The semi-tractor trailer departed from St. Louis, Illinois to a facility in Fayetteville, North Carolina to transport 24 pallets containing cleaning supplies, articles of clothing and food items to members of the community.
“The imprint left by the path of Hurricane Florence may have left many communities broken, but the bonds of Teamster Brotherhood and Sisterhood are unbreakable,” said Terrence J. Hancock, President of Joint Council 25, “when a disastrous situation arises, we make a concise effort to assist and offer our support to our members and their devastated communities.”
Collectively, over 150 pallets of various supplies have been dispersed throughout the State of North Carolina. The convoy included trucks from Teamsters Joint Council 13, YRC Freight and USF Holland. When unions come together to make a change, no storm is too strong to overcome.
