Service + Solidarity Spotlight: Michigan School Driver Receives AFSCME’s Never Quit Service Award
Working people across the United States have stepped up to help out our friends, neighbors and communities during these trying times. In our regular Service + Solidarity Spotlight series, we’ll showcase one of these stories every day. Here’s today’s story.
Front-line workers like Diane Rang of Romeo, Michigan, know all about serving our communities. A food truck delivery driver for a school, she sprang into action when the coronavirus pandemic shut down nearly everything across the country in the spring of 2020. Rang is being recognized by her union, AFSCME, receiving the Never Quit Service Award in honor of her dedicated service to the families in her community. “We do it for the love of the kids,” Rang said. “It makes me feel good at heart….And just to see the kids that they are getting something to eat and it’s nutritious and I know that the parents really appreciate it in our district. It’s rewarding just to help somebody else out that you can.” She is a member of AFSCME Local 2614, Council 25.
