Bethany for Children & Families to honor local unions

ROCK ISLAND, Ill. — Bethany for Children & Families will be hosting the 2013 Family Awards Celebration at Modern Woodmen Ballpark at 6 p.m. Thursday.

Each year, Bethany for Children & Families honors the individuals, families, organizations and businesses that give their time and effort to making the community a better place. Three affiliated unions of the Quad City Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO, have tied for the honor of Community-Focused Business or Employer of the Year.

The local unions receiving this honor are International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 145, the Plumbers and Pipefitters Local 25;and the Sheet Metal Workers Local 91.

Other awards to be presented are:

• Ruth Evelyn Katz Adoptive Family of the Year: Zach and Teri Klipsch;

• Foster Family of the Year: Byron and Pam Keefe;

• Leadership Family of the Year: Clyde and Donna Schoeck;

• Youth Volunteer of the year: Eric White; and

• Community Service Group of the Year: John Deere Cylinder Group Internal Platform.

AFL-CIO unions and our members are committed partners in communities, which leads many to volunteer in a range of community services — from charitable giving and volunteering through United Way to assisting programs that help families in economic or personal crises.

For information, to RSVP or to make a donation, contact Jamie Hendry at (309) 736-6642 or jhendry@bethany-qc.org.
