Union Members Raise Money to Help Each Other
In September, we hosted our first fundraiser for Carpenters Caring. Signatory contractors, locals and members from around the council stepped up and raised nearly $40,000 for IKORCC families in need.
We were proud to have 30 locals and 15 contractors donate and join us for a fundraiser at Turtle Creek Golf Course in Greenville, Ohio. Carpenters Caring Committee Chair Jason Clark, a millwright from Local 1090, said, “The amount of support given from all the locals and contractors was overwhelming. I’ve been a part of many fundraisers over the years, but this is something I carry with great pride. It was a proud moment to see everyone come together. This is the foundation of who we are as a union.
