Hermiston keeps families warm during holidays

Throughout Oregon, warming stations – places where anyone can go to warm up – are critical when cold weather rolls in. OSEA members in Hermiston Chapter 10 gathered donations to make sure their local station has everything they need to keep families safe during freezing weather.

Chapter President Cathy Keeney said the chapter joined up with other local agencies and churches to tackle the warming station’s needs, including warm weather clothing and bottled water. Hermiston members have also been involved with the Agape House, a multifaceted local charity that provides assistance to local families in need.

OSEA members aren’t just employees: We’re proud of our communities and want to contribute in any way we can. And it’s important that we show each other and the world the spirit of OSEA members helping those in need. Your chapter is doing great things, and your union wants to share it with the world.
