Local 276 Helps BC Charity
SMART Sheet Metal Local 276 in Victoria, BC has been working with a local organization called Hero Work. Hero Work brings together companies and workers to perform “Radical Renovations” on buildings that house charities.
Most local charities devote all their finances and efforts to provide for those less fortunate and quite often are in less than desirable buildings that require upgrades. Hero work has completed more than two million dollars in renovations on charity buildings since 2011. This project for PEERS, who help marginalized workers in the sex industry, was Local 276’s second project with Hero Work.
Lewis Sheet Metal provided all the fans, duct and fittings and Associated Sheet Metal provided the stainless steel for back splash in the kitchen.
Local 276 Business Manager Jason Pedersen noted that “this type of work is something members enjoy doing as we show our value to our local communities and build alliances that keep us central to what happens locally. I am proud of our Local’s work in the Victoria community and look forward to the partnerships we will continue to build into the future.”
