When you're out driving this Father's Day weekend and stop at a busy intersection, look for the volunteers wearing the orange shirts. They are tirelessly soliciting donations from passing motorists to support Dollars Against Diabetes, an annual campaign organized by the Building and Construction Trades Department, AFL-CIO to benefit the Diabetes Research Institute. Dollars for Diabetes has raised a whopping $17 million since 1987.
Throw some change in the bucket, and maybe even some greenbacks. We all know it is going to a good cause.
If you miss the orange shirts in your area, union members raise additional dollars through walk-a-thons, softball/golf tournaments, raffles and other local events. Thank you Building and Construction Trades Department, AFL-CIO.
A very Happy Father's Day to all!
