Labor Partnership

Diverse Union workers

United Way has had a longstanding partnership with AFL-CIO to tackle critical issues in the Quad Cities. In fact, two members on the United Way Board of Directors represent organized labor in the Quad Cities.

Our unique collaboration ensures the Quad Cities has the resources to break barriers, creating opportunities for a better life for all.

Much like organized labor, United Way focuses on education, financial stability and health because these are the building blocks for a good quality of life.


This year marks 30th anniversary of the National Association of Letter Carriers' (NALC) one-day Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. We are proud to partner with the NALC and River Bend Foodbank once again for this effort. 

On Saturday, May 14, Quad Citizens were asked to leave a donation of non-perishable food items next to their mailbox before the delivery of mail. Donations stay in the community and are given to local pantries and shelters for those in need. 

27,250 meals were collected this year. Thank you for helping your community. 

Gather together with fellow labor organizations to celebrate the work of Labor Unions and promoting education, health and income stability for each person in our community. 

Union leaders and employees change the lives of those in our community through their donations.

Find out more in the Labor Unions brochure (coming soon).
