Carpenter Contractor Trust produced a short video about Camp Out for Hunger! Check out the contributions from GBCA and Keystone Mountain Lakes Regional Council of Carpenters to Preston & Steve’s Camp Out for Hunger, with food going to Philabundance! KML Carpenters donated nearly 8 tons of food, and GBCA donated 42 tons of fresh produce!
GBCA President Ben Connors and KML Carpenters Assistant Executive Secretary-Treasurer William Sproule talk about the value of giving back to the community, and the importance of access to healthy, fresh food.
The holiday season for most people is a fun time of the year filled with parties, celebrations, and social gatherings with family and friends. For some, however, it is not so joyous, and this may lead to other issues that can affect work and home life.
Depression is a year-round issue, but can be more challenging during the holidays. Substance abuse, as related to mental health issues, can also become more serious in times of stress, or even situations where drugs and alcohol are more readily available, such as holiday parties.
On December 13, GBCA was at INTECH Construction’s Pod Philly Hotel site, filming for one of our upcoming video projects.
Thanks to the crew on the job site, which that day included workers from INTECH Construction, Madison Concrete Construction, BrandSafway, and Castor Materials. We are proud of the craftsmanship and safety that they demonstrate every day!
On December 11, GBCA’s Director of Education and Professional Development Angela Hendrix, PlanGrid’s Josh Progar, and Keystone Mountain Lakes Regional Council of Carpenters’s Layla Bibi spoke to students at Mariana Bracetti Academy Charter High School in Kensington about careers in ACE industries (Architecture, Construction, & Engineering).
