Live United – Labor United: T-Shirt Summer Fundraiser

The United Way of the Quad Cities Area is excited to offer a great opportunity to our local unions to both show your support for the partnership between the AFL-CIO & United Way as well as support our community impact work right here in the Quad Cities.
The “Live United/Labor United” t-shirts come in fluorescent green, safety orange, or navy blue, and are $15 each for any size. The shirts are USA Made and Union Printed. All proceeds will go directly to the United Way of the Quad Cities Area for our Community Impact investment work.
Please fill out the attached order form and let us know how many shirts you would like to purchase and we will take care of the order for your local and have the product shipped directly to you. Once the order is placed, we will submit an invoice to your local union that will be equal to the quantity of shirts requested x $15.
These “Live United/Labor United” t-shirts are ideal for parades, community service projects, the worksite, and just about anywhere else. Since they are quality USA made and union printed, these shirts will last a long time, too.
If your local is interested in ordering these shirts to support the United Way of the Quad Cities Area, all you need to do is fill out the information below and we’ll take it from there.
All orders must be submitted by July 1st and will shipped directly to your local union by mid-July.
