Winter’s chill does not hamper the love and drive of our members, braving January’s below freezing temperatures all in the name of community giving. We are there for our community’s needs. Local 351 of Northwest Ohio built a temporary ramp to be used at the home of a terminally ill union brother. In fact, several unions came together to make this happen: Roofers, Sheet Metal and of course, Carpenters.
Thirteen volunteers gave a couple of evenings and a Saturday to complete the ramp that took 14 hours from dream to complete. They spent eight hours fabricating the ramp inside at the Rossford Training Center. The cost for materials was $1,700 that is of no consequence to the recipient. Everything is 100 percent donated by the Carpenters.
Projects like this prove that none of us are an island. There are always helping hands from every direction. Days are brightened and lives made easier when our proud union trades come together with a common goal.
MACs like Local 351 give shirts for each time you volunteer. If you volunteer 10 times you receive a Local 351 jacket. If you would like to volunteer with a MAC please contact your Local office.
