How a Union contributes to a community is often over looked. But that is not the case when it comes to the Morristown Neighborhood House.

How a Union contributes to a community is often over looked. But that is not the case when it comes to the Morristown Neighborhood House. An organization that helps families in need, was also in need of some upgrades, and many of our journeymen and apprentices answered the call. At the beginning of the summer the Morristown Neighborhood House needed skilled labor to renovate their building. Union Carpenters from Local 253 and 254 volunteered their time, which included renovating a kitchen, replacing old cabinets and general repairs to the facility. Sometimes people don’t realize our members live here, and they have family and friends here. So, when you're fortunate enough to have an organization like Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters behind you, it allows you to pay it forward.
Organizations like the Morristown Neighborhood House are integral to the community that surrounds them and the Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters is no different. The fact that 23 union members are willing to jump in and volunteer their time to uphold our values, can make any one proud. These are the same principals our organizations founders held and continue to carry on from generation to generation.
