LOCAL 562 HELPING STUDENTS IN NEED

Local 562 Donates Food and N95 Masks to LBCC Food Pantries.

Southwest Carpenters Local 562 donated 90 cases of food to the Long Beach City College (LBCC) Viking Vault food pantries.

The LBCC Viking Vault food pantries were established by the office of Student Health at the Liberal Arts and Pacific Coast campuses to provide free nutritional food for students in need to eat on campus or for meal preparation outside of campus, according to LBCC.

“LBCC has really ramped it up when making efforts to help our students who are in need,” said LBCCD Superintendent-President Mike Muñoz in a statement. “We welcome this wonderful gift from Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters right before the start of spring semester.”

Among the donations were also 5,000 KN-95 masks for students.
