Local 338 Gives Back
Supporting the communities that our members live and work in is incredibly important to the mission of Local 338, which is why we are committed to participating in a number of charitable events and opportunities throughout the year. With the help of our members, we regularly hold donation drives to collect items including coats, food, hygiene products, and school supplies to help the work of food pantries and community organizations, which directly benefits families in need throughout New York State.
Here are just some of the events that we have participated in over the last year:

Founded in 2014, Local 338 Charitie’s Inc. is a New York state registered 501(c)3 whose mission is to provide assistance and support to union members and their communities.
