WI Alliance For Retired Americans Collecting Donations for UAW 180 Members on Strike in Racine (Location Listing)

Sisters and Brothers,

Tis the season of charity and goodwill, whether it’s through donation or action, you can help someone whose spirits (and pockets) might need a little extra lifting this holiday season.

Wisconsin Alliance for Retired Americans is celebrating the season through Solidarity!

Our Staff will be out in the Milwaukee, Madison, and Eau Claire communities collecting donations for UAW in the next couple weeks!

Over 1,000 members of UAW Local 180 in Racine and UAW Local 807 in Iowa have been on strike since May 2, 2022 at Case New Holland. Workers of UAW Local 180 and 807 at CNHi produce agricultural and construction equipment including tractor loader backhoes, bulldozers and corn and auger heads. CNHi is one of the world’s largest agricultural and construction equipment makers. UAW workers at CNHi are on strike for the ability to earn a good living, retire with dignity, and establish fair work rules.

We will be collecting kid’s gifts, nonperishable food items, gift cards, hand and foot warmers for the strikers.

We will have also have Calendar Raffle Tickets on hand for purchase (in person ticket sales only). Raffle proceeds support Wisconsin Alliance for Retired Americans , a non-profit advocacy organization that focuses on the issues that affect seniors and their families. The $20 Calendar Raffle tickets make great last minute gifts/stocking stuffers!

Drop off your donation (and purchase a raffle ticket) at these locations (look for the WiARA Logo):

December 15th, 11am – 2pm – Colectivo Coffee- Swan Blvd – Wauwatosa, WI
