Medway, MA – The International Union of Operating Engineers Local 4 made a $100,000 donation from its charitable foundation to the Alzheimer’s Association Massachusetts/New Hampshire Chapter recently to support research, treatment, and advocacy for those affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia. The funds were raised by union members and partners through the union’s annual golf outing.
“We’re immensely proud to help advance the fight against Alzheimer’s disease,” said Local 4 Business Manager William McLaughlin. “Through life-changing research on treatments, prevention, and more, the Alzheimer’s Association is bringing us closer to winning the fight against a disease that has affected far too many families. This donation allows our members to support the organization’s incredible work.”
“This donation is going to make a real impact,” said Jim Wessler, CEO of the Alzheimer’s Association Massachusetts/New Hampshire Chapter. “Millions of people are facing Alzheimer’s disease, and this generous gift brings us one step closer to a cure. Thanks to the support from the members of Local 4, the Alzheimer’s Association will be able to provide much-needed care and support services for families, as well as fund critical research.”
Since its formation in 2018, Operating Engineers Local 4 Charitable Foundation, Inc. has contributed to numerous causes throughout the region. This most recent contribution continues the union’s long history of supporting organizations across New England including decades of helping to advance the work of charitable causes where its membership lives and works.
