As of Nov. 12, a total of $91,501 had been received, with many areas reporting success winning new contributors. Maggie Trowe from Brooklyn reports she raised $100 from a member of the United Food and Commercial Workers union she met at the Labor Day Parade more than a month earlier.
Another note from Anthony Dutrow in Miami read, “During a plant-gate sale at the Ft. Lauderdale port, one International Longshoremen’s Association member renewed his subscription and kicked in $40 to the fund; three others chipped in $10, $5 and $5 respectively for a total of $60. That brings donations from ILA members to $128 during this drive.”
