Project Solidarity

The Project Solidarity Food Bank is accepting donations of food or checks to go to families of laid off miners. Kroger or Giant Eagle gift cards for the struggling families are purchased with donations. If you would like to donate to the Project Solidarity Food Bank, please send food or a check made out to “Project Solidarity.” The mailing address is:

UMWA Region 1

Attn: Project Solidarity Food Bank

135 Wayland Smith Drive

Uniontown, PA 15401


Please consider giving to food drives to help out your UMWA brothers and sisters.  The UMWA is at its heart a family, and now is the time for all of us to come together.


If you are a laid off UMWA member in District 2 or 31, please contact the Region 1 office, (724) 550-4440, or Tanya James, President of Project Solidarity, (304) 790-2123 for more information for how to receive assistance.
