Union Carpenters Lend Skills To Those In Need
Posted by on

Brother Manny Gines is working with Heart 9/11 to coordinate members interested in volunteering their skills to help in Puerto Rico. Following Hurricane Maria, many are still living in homes that need repairs. Union carpenter volunteers are doing that work, as well as establishing an apprentice program that will enable Puerto Ricans to learn our trade and start on a great career path.

Volunteers will travel to Puerto Rico for a week at a time, either from Wednesday through Tuesday or Monday through Sunday. Airfare will be provided and volunteers will room in rented houses with showers and meals made provided. Typical workdays are 7a-3:30pm.

Members interested should read and complete all documents linked below, forwarding them to Brother Gines at mgines@nercc.org or by fax to Manny's attention at 508-752-6714. If you have any questions, please email Manny at mgines@nercc.org.
