CWA Local 2108 member, Joe Patterson, who is a Services Technician at Kirby Road, needs our help.
His 17-year-old son, Joevon Smith-Patterson, who has special needs, was beaten by four classmates at his high school on January 10th, and he passed away from his injuries on January 29th.
Joe was just hired by verizon in October, and didn't have life insurance for his son yet. He needs help to pay for the cremation and other funeral expenses, to give his son a proper goodbye.
If we all give whatever we can, together we can help our union brother and his family get through this horrendous tragedy.
Please give generously. Thank you. Make checks payable to Joe Patterson and mail to the Local.
