This fundraiser will provide Christmas dinner ($50 a family) for the 152 families that were affected by the hostess layoffs.

Just before Thanksgiving, Hostess decided to close the Cincinnati plant, resulting in 152 people losing their jobs just before the holidays. I heard so many people voice their frustration with the layoff and I think our efforts are better suited in helping the families get thru Christmas during this difficult time. There are so many families that it is difficult to do much, but I would like to attempt to provide Christmas dinner for them. I've budgeted $50 per dinner which will include a ham and sides. Any additional money earned will be distributed to the families as Kroger gift cards. Please help any way you can. Every dollar counts.

Many thanks to Andy Hounshell for tracking down the union rep for me. :)
