NCW Supports Miracle Place

Screen shot 2014-03-10 at 4.48.07 PMNational Construction Workforce has agreed to partner with other local contractors and developers in an effort to expand facilities at The Miracle Place. The  Miracle Place has been in existence for nearly fourteen years. Miracle Place offers educational opportunities and cultural experiences for various age groups. The Sisters of Providence who operate its facilities believe that by bringing together neighbors for neighborhood activities and celebrations, a sense of community is established; trust and good will are strengthened. On a daily basis, the facility offers services such as study groups, after school mentoring programs and food pantry assistance.

Specifically, NCW is going to be donating electrical labor to the construction of the new facilities. We have also offered services to allow them to expand upon and maintain their current community garden. As these projects take a more definite shape, we will be looking for potential mentors and volunteers for the gardening operation, and will reach out to available electricians within our workforce for assignment on the construction project. Stay tuned!
