Laborers provide warmth and comfort to Newburgh families

Laborers’ Local 17 believes that every child deserves the warmth of cozy pajamas and a fresh pillow. Working under the Laborers’ International Union of North America’s (LIUNA) Feel the Care community outreach initiative, they made sure parents in Newburgh were able to provide these comforts for their children. On Nov. 17, Frank Marchese, executive director of the NYS Laborers’ Health & Safety Trust Fund, said that hundreds of pillows and pajamas were given to parents who drove up to the Newburgh Armory Unity Center.
