MDA Charity Drive 
Total Donations Raised By LU537 - $12,582.43  
Once again, Pipefitters Association Local Union 537 encourages our Members, Members of the Massachusetts Building Trades and all who visit our website, to support this year's Charity Drive for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).

No Donation is Too Large or Too Small!
    The years of Jerry Lewis' 24 Hour Non-Stop Network and Local MDA Telethon Coverage has ended, but the desperate need for donations still lives on behind the camera's, in the homes of many who suffer from this debilitating disease. 
    On behalf of Pipefitters Local 537, I write to ask for your support of a cause close to my heart; the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s Annual Labor Day Charity Drive. As a boy growing up with an Uncle who suffered from Muscular Dystrophy, I witnessed firsthand the life altering effects this disease has on its victims and their entire families. Pipefitters Local 537 and the Boston Building Trades have supported the MDA’s Together We Can Make A Difference Campaign since 1985, and I am proud that our membership remains dedicated to this worthwhile cause today.   

      “Pipefitters Local 537 is one of the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s most  steadfast sponsors, having been a charitable partner with the Boston chapter for 29 years and counting,” stated MDA Boston Executive Director, Kate Tighe, in a recent Boston Globe article. “The longevity of this relationship is owed to the strength and endurance of Local 537’s membership’s belief in honoring commitment, staying the course, and working towards a better future.

    Your donation will directly help with not only the foundations extensive research efforts, but will assist our  local MDA provide direct patient care in the form of wheelchairs, orthopedic aids, clinic counseling, transportation, summer camps and much more.  All services provided by the MDA are offered at no cost to MDA patients and their families.
