What makes this even more special this year is that many of the members of Plumbers’ and Pipefitters’ Local #562 are currently unemployed and yet they still gave of their time and talent.” rnrnG. Raymond Hefner, Executive Vice President of the Plumbing Industry Council echoed Morgan’s sentiments stating “this is just another way that licensed, union plumbing contractors give something back to the community by providing quality repairs and installations to those who are in some cases living in unsafe conditions.” “We are proud to participate in this worthwhile event and assist those St. Louisans who would otherwise not be able to afford quality plumbing repairs.”rnrnRebuilding Together is made possible by the extensive volunteer work of many contractor members of the Plumbing Industry Council and Plumbers’ and Pipefitters’ Local #562. Initially, retired tradespersons go to the properties and evaluate the situation and identify the needs of the homes chosen for the event. A tradesperson is then assigned to each home being renovated as the captain. The captain is charged with buying the materials for the work, ensuring it is delivered on time and supervising the volunteers completing the repairs and renovations.rnrnThe Plumbing Industry Council is a local, union trade association affiliated with the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors National Association. The Council represents licensed, union plumbing and mechanical companies in St. Louis. For more information on the Plumbing Industry Council, visit www.picstl.com.rnrn
