Partnership with Zallie ShopRite Highlights Holiday Efforts
November 25, 2014 (Philadelphia) – Councilman Bobby Henon (6th District) joined fellow members of International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Union Local 98, its Business Manager John J. Dougherty and George Zallie of Zallie ShopRite (Frankford Ave. & Knorr St.) yesterday to donate more than 200 turkeys and trimmings to families in need across Northeast Philadelphia.
Councilman Henon, Local 98 members and Philadelphia Plumbers Union Local 690 helped unload the meals and prepared for delivery to Thanksgiving tables around the Northeast.
“In reflecting on our own blessings and giving thanks, we should also recognize and help our fellow neighbors,” Councilman Henon said. “I couldn’t be prouder to help get these meals to families that need them, and I thank John J. Dougherty, 63rd Ward Leader Brian Eddis, Local 690, IBEW Local 98 and Zalle ShopRite for helping to make it happen.”
Turkeys were distributed from Zallie ShopRite and sent to locations throughout the Northeast, with 30 being distributed through Councilman Henon’s District Office on Torresdale Ave.
