DC9 Gives Back to Local Communities

On Saturday, April 16th thousands of members of District Council 9 IUPAT gave back to local communities by helping to refinish facilities owned and operated by not for profit organizations throughout the State.

Local projects included Brooklyn’s Rosetta Gaston Senior Center and Manhattan’s Covenant House.

“This may be the first official ‘Community Day of Action,’ but DC 9 has been giving back to the communities we live and work in for more than one hundred years,” said Joseph Azzopardi, Business Manager and Secretary Treasurer of DC 9, who also sits on the Executive Board of the NYC CLC. “DC 9 and its members don’t only refinish your bridges, tunnels, and large scale buildings – we are also the coach of the local little league team, sitting next to you at church, or shoveling your neighbor’s sidewalk.”
