The RACOCHR Community Service Committee is asking for donations of coats in new or like new condition. We are all keenly aware of the severity of the Michigan winters and the challenges they present in staying healthy. Many members in our communities are faced with financial adjustments in “weathering the storms”, which may not allow them to ensure the warmth of themselves or their children as they travel to work and school.
Donations accepted now through October 31, 2015
Feel free to read and reprint the attached flyer. It provides contact information to arrange for pick-up of your donations. If you have any questions, please contact John Cunningham at 586-427-9200.Read more >>>

Teamsters President Hoffa Pledges Solidarity with UAW Members
In remarks at the Detroit Labor Day Parade today, International Brotherhood of Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa pledged solidarity with the United Auto Workers (UAW) in their contract negotiations with the Big Three: Ford, Chrysler and GM.
“I know you haven’t picked a target yet, but it’s one of those three,” Hoffa said. “If the UAW goes on strike, I make a pledge on behalf of the 1.4 million Teamster members – we will honor your picket lines. We will walk with you every day. The Teamsters and the UAW are together. They aren’t going to haul those cars if we’re there.”
