Above and Beyond

Gloria Smith

ATU Local 880 sister goes "above & beyond"

The homeless and less fortunate in Camden City, NJ have a true hero at ATU Local 880 looking out for them…and setting an example for all ATU members

Sister Gloria Smith, a bus driver for 28 years, has organized a holiday drive to collect food, clothing and toys for the poorer citizens of Camden City, NJ the last few years.

Then on Christmas Day, rather than spend it with her family, Sister Smith and her volunteers handed out the food, clothing, blankets, coats, toys, games while serving hot dogs and coffee to the less fortunate citizens of Camden City. 

“Sister Smith has a heart of gold and would do anything for everybody.  She is affectionately known as "Momma G" to her passengers,” said Local 880 President Stephen Knestaut.  “She has always offers to help when she sees someone who is down on their luck.  Sister Smith has an infectious smile and brightens the day of everyone she comes into contact with.  She is truly a selfless person who definitely gives back to society.”

The ATU applauds Sister Gloria Smith for going “Above & Beyond.”
