IBEW supports Housing Families to help the neediest families in our area. As you know, we do collections during the Holiday Season to ensure these kids don’t have to go without. Throughout the year we also provide pizza parties, trips to an amusement park, movie tickets, and bowling outings, just to name a few.
Housing Families serves very low-income Greater Boston families who are homeless, at risk of becoming homeless, or newly-housed in affordable housing. Children make up the majority of the individuals Housing Families serves. 87% of the households served are single parent and female-headed, and family sizes average between 2 and 3 members.
IBEW Local 2222 has committed to raising $10K to assist the neediest of our neighbors. Over the coming months, we will be running raffles, collections and activities to hit our goal of $10K.
We are currently selling raffle tickets to help us reach our goal.

Local 12003 USW and Local 12012 USW have been locked out by National Grid for over six months.
On December 24th the Senate, under the leadership of Madam President Spilka and the House under the leadership of Speaker DeLeo, passed the unemployment extension bill for 1250 workers, and four thousand family members and future workers who might find themselves locked out for more than six months by another corporation either foreign or US owned.
The leadership of the Senate and the House can only be described as incredible. Each member of the House and Senate voted unanimously to place this bill on Governor Bakers desk.
Please Call Governor Baker’s office and ask him to sign the unemployment extension bill to protect locked out workers (617)725-4005. If you are unable to get through by phone, please send an email to the Governor’s Chief of Staff, Kristen Lepore- Kristen.firstname.lastname@example.org
