Local Carpenters Donate to Disabled American Veterans

In early October, Local 2 of the Indiana/Kentucky/Ohio Regional Council of Carpenters (IKORCC) donated $1,500 to Disabled American Veterans (DAV), a national veterans advocacy and assistance group with the core mission of providing veterans with a full range of benefits to lead high-quality lives.

Donations for DAV were collected at Local 2’s annual picnic, which was organized by the Local 2 Member Action Committee (MAC). Funds were raised by general donations and activities at the picnic, including Local 2 member participation in a dunk tank.

“Several Local 2 members are veterans, so we feel obligated to do what we can to give back to our nation’s heroes,” said Richard Fletcher, IKORCC Representative. “DAV is a really great organization with an amazing purpose. We are honored to present them with a monetary gift as our way of saying thank you to the men and women who put their lives on the line to protect our country and our freedom.”
