The Custom Contracting Team always looks forward to our monthly meetings of the Eastern Massachusetts Chapter of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (EM NARI). We all agree that the December membership meeting is the most exciting of the year as we welcome United States Marine Corps Reserve members Peter Manning and Kevin Crowley. Peter and Kevin may be retired, but they spend all their free time collecting mountains of goodies for Toys for Tots. The toys are distributed during the holiday season to children whose parents cannot afford to purchase Christmas gifts.
The Custom Contracting team added lots of toys to the growing pile of presents including science kits and games. The retired marines spoke eloquently to the large group of remodeling professionals about their decades-long history volunteering with Toys for Tots.
After the toy presentation EM NARI members heard a presentation on workforce development and discussed a variety of ideas on how to encourage the next generation to consider a career in the trades. Few young adults realize the potential for a rewarding career in the remodeling industry.
