Members of District Council 5/Local Union 1964 (Tacoma, Washington) know the importance of giving back to our military veterans. In 2014, Rally Point 6, the local non-profit program that aids veterans in their transition to civilian life, approached the council to ask for assistance in completing work on their building.
Leaders and members LU 1964 didn’t hesitate to volunteer to complete work on the interior and some exterior sections of the building. With additional help from community volunteers from around the local area, the project took about six weekends to complete. Since completion, the council has used the facility to host multiple meetings for the Painters and Allied Trades Veterans Program.
