IBEW/NECA Electrical Connection volunteers made repairs and installed electrical improvement for 15 to low-income homes on April 23 in the 19th year of Rebuilding Together, an annual Repair Blitz to help elderly and low-income residents in St. Louis City and County.

An army of 200 volunteers fanned out across the region to make needed repairs and improvements to 15 low-income homes for the non-profit RebuildingTogether St. Louis.

Volunteers with the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 1 teamed with more than a dozen electrical contractor members of the St. Louis Chapter, National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) to make the needed repairs.

Since 2003, the IBEW/NECA Electrical Connection partnership has donated more than $2.3 million in labor and materials to repair the homes of low-income, disabled and elderly St. Louisans served by RebuildingTogether.

UNION ELECTRICIANS made quick work of the needed repairs, putting their years of training and experience in the field to work for needy residents in St. Louis City and County. – IBEW Local 1 photo
