Due to the uncertainty around the coronavirus pandemic, the Teamsters Local 251 Charity Fund has unfortunately decided to postpone our annual series of events in 2021. We had considered planning to co-sponsor the Annual Touch A Truck event, host the Dennis Lavallee Memorial Softball Tournament, and co-sponsor the annual Golf Tournament to raise money for our Charity partners and our Scholarship fund.
We thank our 2020 event sponsors and Teamster members for their participation and contributions, and we encourage everyone to contribute despite the postponement of events. Teamsters Local 251 Charity Fund is a 501(c)3 non-profit charity (EIN: 47-1036711), providing fundraising for our charity partners Good Neighbors of RI, Rosemary’s Wish Kids, and other worthwhile charities. Our scholarship fund provides financial assistance for children of active Teamster members who are seeking college education. Any and all contributions are 100% tax deductible in 2020, and are very much appreciated. Contributions can be accepted by check or credit card payment. We’ve also added an online shop option for select merchandise.
The contributions last year allowed us to provide twelve college scholarships to dependents of Teamster members, as well as contribute to our charity partners. We will focus our resources to helping those in need in these difficult times.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office further. Thank you.
