Local 158 supports Easter Seals Telethon

Komatsu Mining Systems matches union donations

MEMBERS OF LOCAL 158, Peoria, Ill., raised $2,000 for Easter Seals this year. L-158 President S. Mike Damm answered phones during the annual March 31-April 1 telethon, accepting donations for the help and hope of children with disabilities. He raised funds from Local 158 members who work at Komatsu Mining Systems and from two sister companies: Teleweld, out of Streater, Ill., and John Best & Sons, out of Galva, Ill. Komatsu then matched the donations.

Damm wants to thank all the Local 158 members for their generosity and Komatsu for showing such great support for its employees.

Easter Seals — a nonprofit, community-based health agency — has been helping individuals with disabilities and special needs, and their families, for more than 80 years.
