On January 5, 2017, members of District Council 15 devoted their time and energy to installing new flooring at the City Impact Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. City Impact Center is a valuable community resource providing families and low-income individuals services such as free medical clinics, job assistance, family mentoring and prepared meals.
Volunteers for the project included floor coverers from Local Union 1512 (Henderso, Nevada), DC 15 Director of Training Adolf Duarte and LU 1512 Business Representative and Floor Covering Instructor Henry Hidalgo. Local Union 1512 contractor, Freeman’s Carpet Service, donated over $12,000 for labor and materials for the project. D’Angelo’s Desert Paint, Inc. also contributed to the City Impact Center project, donating 75 gallons of paint which was used for further building upgrades. District Council 15’s volunteers completed renovations at the center in eight days.
The International Union of Painters and Allied Trades thanks the members of District Council 15 for their work on the City Impact Center. We hope that District Council 15 and the rest of our councils continue to volunteer in projects that improve our communities.
