The St. Louis Area Chapter of the Teamsters National Women’s Caucus is being formed in Joint Council 13.  We are very excited to have embarked on this endeavor and are actively looking for Teamster Women to join our organization which has been set up by women, for women to:

  • Give women a voice
  • Improve Teamster women through education
  • Unite women members for the purpose of addressing their concerns and issues in the workplace and in their communities.
  • Better the community by offering their services where needed.
  • Promote women’s involvement and recognition within their Locals and all levels of the Teamsters.

Teamsters Joint Council 13 Donates Over $12,000 to St. Louis Children's Foundation for Snowflake Village

This past weekend Teamsters Joint Council 13 in St. Louis raised over $12,000 at their 1st. Annual Dan McKay Memorial Bass Tournament. The donation was presented at last night’s Delegate’s Meeting by President Kropp to Kathryn Lodes and Lauren Warner, representatives of St. Louis Children’s Hospital, Snowflake Village.  Every year Snowflake Village provides gifts for children in the hospital at Christmas time as well as any siblings.   Jill and Lauren representatives from St. Louis Children's Hospital told the Teamsters that it was the largest contribution that they had ever received, and they were overwhelmed by the generosity.

 Marvin Kropp Teamsters Joint Council President explained how the Teamsters became involved.  Last Christmas, retired Teamster and Missouri State Representative Bob Burns reached out to Marvin about Teamster’s support for Snowflake Village.  After hearing about the wonderful work Snowflake Village does for families of sick children spending Christmas in the hospital, Marvin and Mike Goebel, vice-president of Joint Council 13 decided to help.  On Christmas Eve, they went to Children’s Hospital with a donation from Joint Council 13, and to help wrap gifts for the children.  “It was a very moving experience to see the joy of the children when they received their gifts.  So when picking a charity for the bass tournament, Snowflake Village was our first choice,” stated President Kropp. 

We look forward to partnering with Snowflake Village in our future charity bass tournaments and we have made a commitment to do so. Teamsters Joint Council 13 would like to thank everyone who made a contribution to this great cause and to all the hard work that everyone put into this event to make it such a huge success!
