Help Local 1636 raise money for MDA Rochester and Buffalo by ‘filling the boot’ when traveling through #ROC. This collection boot is located in front of the East Avenue Brew Pub, located in the middle of the A concourse. There is another boot similarly placed in the B concourse, as well!

Through the sale of our 2017 breast cancer awareness shirts, the members of Local 1636 were able to raise $585 to benefit local Breast and Gynecologic Cancer patients. On February 12th, President Paul Miller presented a check to the Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester in honor of Lauren Morelle, who finished her battle with cancer on August 30, 2017. Lauren bravely documented her battle on the Facebook page Lauren vs. Cancer, and became an inspiration to many by never losing her smile or letting cancer win.

Lauren's brother, County Legislator Joseph Morelle Jr, and her husband, Nathan Stone, were also present and received shirts of their own on behalf of our members.

From R to L; Local 1636 President Paul Miller, BCCR Outreach Coordinator Lori Meath, Monroe County Legislator Joe Morelle, Jr., Nathan Stone. This donation was made in honor of the late Lauren Morelle, whose photo is on the table at left.
