Responding to a critical need for added security at Warren’s Beatitude House, NECA-IBEW Electricians stepped up with a $1,000 donation to pay for the installation and materials for two 1,000-watt security lights at the non-profit agency’s Tod Avenue location.
The Trumbull County service organization provides transitional housing and support services for women and children, many of whom are the victims of domestic violence. It reached out to the Mahoning Valley union electrical contractor’s organization for help when the need arose.
NECA-IBEW Electricians member contractor University Electric of Youngstown and IBEW-represented electricians performed the lighting nstallation.
“The additional lighting illuminates our parking lot, and makes guests and staff feel much safer when they enter and leave the building at night,” said Teresa Boyce from Beatitude House’s administration office. “We invested in installing security cameras 360-degrees around our building last year, but found we couldn’t see very well when it was dark out. This fixes that problem.”
NECA-IBEW Electricians is an association of Youngstown- and Warren-area union electrical contractors and IBEW electricians. The group, and its individual members, regularly gives back to the communities in which it does business.
