Laborers’ Care RIDE
It’s time to officially announce the ride date’s for Laborers C.A.R.E 2020. We will gather together in Reliance Tennessee with registration beginning at 12 Noon on Monday September 28, 2020. Rides will be on Tuesday 29th and Wednesday 30th and dinner will be provided as in the past for all three nights.
We are living in troubled times and while our plans might have to change. I’m taking a leap of faith that the pandemic will be winding down to a level acceptable for us to safely gather together. We will be practicing social distancing and all other safety measures recommended.
Last year was another record year for fundraising and I am so proud of all the support we receive each year. I am as well sad that C.A.R.E was called upon many times to provide assistance to the family’s of our membership. I have said many times it is heart breaking to write those checks but an honor to offer the assistance C.A.R.E. provides.
Please stay safe, ride safe and may God bless our country and LIUNA.

This charitable fund was created to assist the families of LIUNA members in the Ohio Valley and Southern States Region who have been seriously injured on the job and are unable to work, or in the most unfortunate circumstance, lose their lives while working as Laborers. Laborers’ CARE offers immediate financial support (up to five thousand dollars) to ensure an individual’s short-term obligations are met, i.e. – the rent is paid, food is in the house, truck/car payments made, and of course the needs of children are met.
It is the goal of Laborers’ CARE to assist Laborers’ families through these most difficult times. Laborers’ CARE relies on the goodwill of individuals through voluntary donations and sponsorship of its annual Great Smoky Mountain Motorcycle Rally event to raise funds to fulfill its mission.
