Since 1983, the UFCW has proudly supported the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society as they pioneer new research in battling terrible and deadly illnesses. UFCW Local 655 is especially proud of this partnership, and has hosted an annual charitable golf tournament since 1983 to support the cause.
The Local 655 family is deeply committed to our non-profit partners, especially those championing new treatments and cures for debilitating diseases. We believe labor should be a force for good in the community at large.
Our longtime friend and ally at the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, David Timko, made a short video explaining how the relationship between the UFCW and LLS has literally helped save lives. Timko, a senior vice president for volunteer engagement at LLS, is a leukemia survivor, and understands just how important this fight is.
