      Spirit of Giving
      Toy & Supplies Drive for Abused and Neglected Sheltered Dogs and Cats & Food Drive for the Soup Kitchens

      Its that time of year again where Local 280 is collecting donations to deliver to Animal Shelters!  They are in need of  dog and cat toys, (heavy duty Kong toys for the dogs are in high demand), used blankets, towels, first aid supplies, collars, leashes, cleaning supplies and food.  The horror that some of these animals have endured range from starvation, beatings, leaving them tied up to a tree with a broken pelvis and bowl of water, to people setting them on fire.  They more than deserve  toys and treats for Christmas.  You can view a story about how extreme animal abuse is in our society here.  For what these poor dogs have endured, they deserve to be spoiled.

      This year also we are incorporating a Food Drive.   Food that is donated will be delivered to Soup Kitchens and Pantries for the Low Income. 

      Donations can be dropped off at the Union Hall.  Deadline to drop items off will be December 20th.

      Any help is greatly appreciated and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to give Sherri a call at 541-812-1771 or shoot her an email sherri@ibew280.org  Thanks!

      The Beginning...
      Henry Miller
      Henry Miller, the first President of the IBEW, died in 1896 without enough money for a decent burial.  Miller was not alone.  In the early part of the 20th century accidental electrocution among people employed in the electrical industry occurred with such frequency that many insurance companies refused to insure the lives of electrical workers.  Others set the premiums so high that the typical electrical worker could not afford to maintain life insurance for his or her survivng family.  In response to this dilemma members of the IBEW established a fraternal death benefit association in 1922 whose essential purpose was to provide the named beneficiary of a deceased member a sum that might permit our members to be interred in a dignified manner.  That was later merged with the IBEW Pension Benefit Fund.  You can view more on that here.  Also, if you click on the picture above you will be able to view a short movie detailing how the IBEW came about.
