HQ gets drenched for charity

International raises money to fight ALS

There were no dry eyes -- or other body parts -- for several dozen volunteers at International headquarters, August 29, as they endured a drenching of ice water in the fight against ALS. A number of Bank of Labor employees also took part in the “freeze line.”

The International group dunking raised $1,200, which will be matched by the Brotherhood. Participants from Bank of Labor contributed at least $500 (totals were still being determined at press time), with a dollar-for-dollar match to be added by the bank.
