Participate In CUPP


Participate In CUPP

CUPP is the Carpenters Union Participation Program, a council-wide volunteer effort to make a difference in our local communities.

Participating in volunteer activities is a way to ensure the future of our communities. Whether attending a city council meeting, building a ramp at a vet’s home, fixing a sidewalk for the elderly, or framing a house for Habitat for Humanity, we can leverage our amazing skills to make a difference in people’s lives.

Besides making the Union and our communities stronger, CUPP provides many benefits to members and our families.
