Teamsters assisting Habitat for Humanity

The Teamsters union has signed an agreement to become a national partner of Habitat for Humanity, an international nonprofit, ecumenical Christian ministry that builds homes for needy families.

"No one should have to live on the streets or in cardboard boxes; we're asking our members to help families get decent housing," said Teamsters President Ron Carey.

In addition to helping out with the construction work, the international union is encouraging its more than 2 million active and retired members to help transport building supplies.
