Here is the SWRCC Top Three for the week of May 17th.

Arizona Carpenters Volunteer to Help Local Veteran in Need 

Over the weekend, members of Local 1912 offered their services to help a local veteran, Jerry, who needed maintenance on his roof. Unable to complete the work himself due to a health condition, a friend of Jerry and former Union contractor reached out to the Southwest Carpenters for help. Local 1912 Carpenters answered the call and were ready to get to work. Helping out former veterans, like Jerry, is just one of the small ways we have been able to give back to those who have sacrificed so much for us.

Local 714 Hosts COVID-19 Vaccination Drive for Members 

Carpenters and their families had their “shot” to get the vaccine at Local 714. Senator Newman and Albertson’s helped provide the Pfizer vaccines to interested Union Carpenters and their families, including children over the age of 16. Senator Newman and Mayor Pro Tem Sunny Park were in attendance to witness the first Carpenter vaccine drive and show support. Members who attended will receive their second dose on June 5th. Additional vaccination drives are expected to take place throughout the Southwest.
