For more than 30 years, the UFCW has partnered with LLS to fund and support some of the world’s best and brightest blood cancer researchers to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life for patients and their families. To date, we have raised over $86 million to help fund research that has advanced treatments such as chemotherapy, stem cell transplantation, and smart drugs, which have become the standard for many other cancers.
This year, there are many opportunities to participate in Labor Against Cancer, starting with our annual member drive. It is simple to donate, and we have worked with LLS to provide some exciting incentives that will help promote LLS awareness and member participation, as follows:
• Every member that donates any amount will be entered into a national chance drawing to win a $25 dollar Visa gift cards (25 winners).
• For Local Unions that achieve a minimum of 50 percent member participation, participating members will be entered in a national chance drawing to win one of 15 $250 Visa gift cards.
• For the Local Union with the highest percent of member participation, all participating members will receive an additional five chances to win either one of the Visa gift cards above.
Additionally, each $10 donor will receive a Labor Against Cancer wristband and each $20 donor will receive a union-made Labor Against Cancer pin.
Together, we can show our brothers and sisters who are struggling with blood cancers that they are not alone and can have hope for the future. Donate today and stand with your fellow UFCW family in the battle to end blood cancers.
