Fall 2019 UFCW Local 8D Scholarship Drawing

Each fall the Union holds an annual general membership meeting for all Local 8D members working at Horizon Beverage and United Liquors. At that meeting, Local 8D provides ten (10) $1,000.00 scholarships to college students whose parents are Union members. Five (5) scholarships are awarded to the children of Horizon Beverage members and five (5) to the children of United Liquors members. To be eligible, the students must be currently enrolled in a college program.**

This year our general membership meeting will be held on Friday, September 20, 2019 at the Holiday Inn – Taunton at 7:00 a.m. The Awards will be picked at the meeting by a drawing. If your child’s name is drawn, you must be present at the meeting to receive the Award. If your child’s name is drawn, you must produce proof of current college enrollment to receive the award. Proof can be a registrar’s notice, school produced class schedule, or any other document that demonstrates that your son or daughter is actually enrolled.

If your child is an eligible college student, please complete the attached application and return it by Friday, September 13, 2019.  The applications may be submitted electronically through the Local 8D website at http://ufcwlocal8d.com/scholarships; by email to local8d@gmail.com; by mail to Anne R. Sills, UFCW Local 8D, 33 Harrison Avenue, 7th Floor, Boston, MA 02111; or by fax to Attn: Anne R. Sills at (617) 742-2187.

**It is the Executive Board’s policy that students may not receive Awards more than two drawings in a row. Therefore, students who received Awards in each of the last two drawings are ineligible from participating in this drawing.
