Caterpillar Retirees Club : Community Involvement & Club Activities
PUBLIC OUTREACH PROGRAMS
The Caterpillar Retirees Club objectives lead us to offer support to the community through collecting can goods and money for local food pantries each month, and volunteer by ushering at Peoria Players, Eastlight Theaters, IHSA March Madness for small school basketball tournament at Peoria Civic Center, and helping with Red Cross Blood drives at the Peoria Caterpillar area facilities. Volunteers promote good will and happiness among those they serve. We also get requests from other organizations throughout the year for Caterpillar Retirees to volunteer. Call or stop by the office on Friday’s as we are looking for retirees interested in volunteering to help others. Some just help once a year at our March Madness which this year is being held on March 12 from 10 a.m. until 1 P.M while others just sign up to work 6 times a year at one of the local plant locations for a Red Cross Blood Drives.
