What started as a small Facebook group has now grown into a community of more than 700 women working in the construction industry in Boston. Boston Union Trade Sisters are dedicated to “coming together to support, encourage and uplift” their fellow tradeswomen and their communities.
This week, they participated in the state Department of Children and Families (DCF) Christmas party for children in foster care, and provided holiday cheer, smiles and fun.
On the lead up to the holiday season, the tradeswomen ran their own fundraisers for this special event. With the funds raised, they set up a magical booth with Mr. and Mrs. Claus, provided toys, wish lists, photos, arts and crafts activities, but above all they brought joy to all.
We would like to say a huge thank you to every one of the tradeswomen who worked hard to make this a joyous occasion – with special kudos to our very own: Hieu Nguyen (Local 327), Rebeca Saravia (Local 327), Makeysha Richards (Pile Drivers Local 56), Zherine Riley (Local 330) and Kelly Maher (Local 723).
