The Riverview School serves students with special needs, from Kindergarten to 21 years of age, and maintains educational programs throughout the Queens Borough in New York.

“I worked a lot of flights in my years at JFK. I can tell you that Local 1322 is a made up of a great bunch of people. They’ve been doing this for years, and they’ve touched a lot of lives.
