Local 1912 Partners with Make-A-Wish to Build Gazebo
Over the past two weekends, Local 1912 Carpenters in Arizona partnered with the Make-A-Wish Foundation. This month’s special project was to build a backyard gazebo for a terminally ill child named Thomas. Volunteer Carpenters quickly got together last weekend to pour concrete in the family’s backyard. This weekend, they completed the project by building a gazebo from the ground up. Thank you Local 1912 Volunteers for putting on all hands on deck and making a difference!
