Machinists Union District Lodge 751 makes Halloween sweeter in White Center


IAM 751 Business Rep Rich McCabe and Les Mullen, the president of Machinists Union Local Lodge 751-A, deliver nearly 600 pounds of candy collected by union members to Salvation Army Maj. Raymond Erickson-King and Bill Tallbot, the social services director for the Salvation Army of White Center.

Members of Machinists Union District Lodge 751 did their part to make Halloween a little sweeter for kids in White Center.

Union members collected close to 600 pounds of candy, which they donated to the Salvation Army of White Center for its annual Halloween party.

“There was enough candy left over to cover their Christmas party too,” said IAM 751 Business Representative Rich McCabe, who headed up the union’s candy drive.

The Salvation Army’s annual Halloween party provides a safe alternative to trick-or-treating for children in the White Center neighborhood.

This year’s party was a lot of fun for everyone, thanks in large part to Machinists Union members, said Maj. Raymond Erickson-King, the Salvation Army’s senior officer in White Center. “Lots of kids and families benefited from your organization’s generosity,” he said.
