Ham: Two pick-up trucks worth

What started over a decade ago as a modest joint donation to Lower Columbia CAP Meals on Wheels by the local Building Trades and the Cowlitz-Wahkiakum Central Labor Council has grown 500%! This year, with extra help from individual unions and other community partners, local labor groups were able to purchase $5,585 worth of hams from local grocer Cascade Select Market for the program, which delivers food to homebound and disabled seniors.

There were enough hams to fill two full-sized pickup trucks with eight-foot beds and side rails.

Donating were Plumbers and Fitters Local 26, IBEW Local 48, Operating Engineers Local 701, Boilermakers Local 502, Laborers Local 335, Service Employees Local 925, Association of Western Pulp and Paper Workers Local 633, Longview-Kelso Building Trades Council, Cowlitz-Wahkiakum Central Labor Council, Northwest Innovations Works Kalama, Millennium Bulk Terminals, and Sunrise Dental.
