NECA-IBEW Electricians member contractors and the local electrical workers unions have a long history of contributing back to the communities where they live and work. And that sentiment was evident once again as both Joe Dickey Electric and IBEW Local 64 participated heavily in a “Coat Drive” organized among the construction crews at the St. Elizabeth Boardman Health Center expansion.
The “Warm for the Holidays” public service project solicited new or gently used coats, hats, gloves and monetary donations, which were turned over to the Emmanuel Community Care Center for distributing among other charitable organizations around the Mahoning and Shenango Valleys.
The campaign ran five weeks and was a huge success thanks to the participation of the contractors, unions and suppliers working at the St. Elizabeth’s construction site.
St. Elizabeth’s is in the midst of a new six-story tower that will add 184,000 square feet to the Boardman campus. Joe Dickey Electric is handling the general electrical package for the project.
