While working a project at WE Energies, Port Washington Generating Station in Wisconsin, APM Fossil North Night Shift Superintendent, Jason Bowen, had the inspirational idea to organize a food drive for those less fortunate in the Port Washington area. Jason staged a collection box near the craft break area and shared his idea with the Day Shift Superintendent, Ken Robertson, and they got the word out to their crews. Millwrights from Local #2337 as well as Millwrights from many states and Union Locals, Operating Engineers from the Milwaukee Local and GE Supervision all generously participated by filling the box with donations.
Hunger affects millions of people around the country, including children, senior citizens and veterans. Feeding America states, “Hunger can affect people from all walks of life. Many people facing hunger are forced to make tough choices between buying food and medical bills, food and rent and/or food and transportation.”
The APM team was at WE Energies to perform a major inspection on a D-11 and also came together to give unselfishly to the needy. “This is what makes me proud to be a union member and Superintendent for APM,” says Ken Robertson. A well-deserved thank you to Jason for organizing this food drive and to all who participated with donations.
