The Industry Advancement Fund, established by Roofers Local NO. 2 and the Signatory Roofing Contractors, recently made a donation to Shriners Hospital for Children. The cash donation allowed the Hospital to purchase educational, life-size skeletal dolls.
The anatomically correct skeletons include identification of major bones and organ systems to help children understand their illness and treatment.
“We are very grateful for the generosity of the union roofers,” notes Alice Woodruff, a representative with Shriners Hospital. “This donation will directly benefit the children here at Shriners.”
The United Union of Roofers, Waterproofers and Allied Workers Local No. 2 office is located at 2920 Locust Street in St. Louis. The Industry Advancement Fund was established to maintain and promote the unionized roofing industry in Missouri and Illinois and is funded by the Signatory Roofing Contractors.
