WickedLocal West Roxbury: Roslindale Painters Union DC gives $1K to Helmets to Hardhats vet group
In recognition of Veteran’s Day, Massachusetts building trades unions, including Roslindale-based Painters Union DC 35, honored local veterans recently and raised more than $50,000 for life-changing career pathways program, Helmets to Hardhats.
Helmets to Hardhats is a national nonprofit that connects National Guard, reserve and transitioning active-duty military members with meaningful, family-sustaining careers in the union building trades. Painters Union DC 35 donated $1,000 to the group.
The Massachusetts Building Trades Council is a longtime supporter of the program, which has placed more than 575 military veterans in union construction jobs statewide.
