On August 6, 2021, the District Council hosted its 6th annual charity golf tournament to sponsor Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors (JAH4WW) at the beautiful Crystal Springs Resort in New Jersey. The District Council raised over $325,000 for JAH4WW, a non-profit organization which works to build and remodel universally accessible homes for injured U.S. military veterans. The tournament received a great turnout of supporters. The day was filled with fun, laughter, solidarity, and, of course, golf.
Over the past few years, the District Council charity donated over $1.3 million dollars to JAH4WW and union carpenters from across the country have volunteered to build homes for U.S. military veterans and their families to honor their service and sacrifices for our country. The event also serves as a way to develop the District Council’s partnerships with our contractors, many of whom were in attendance and donated to this great cause.
Our union has many members who have served and who are currently serving their country. We are dedicated to supporting our returning service members, both within our membership and throughout the country.
“After a brief hiatus last year, we are thrilled to be back supporting this great organization. Our partnership with Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors continues to grow each year, and we are proud to recognize the extraordinary men and women who put their lives on the line for us,” EST Joseph Geiger said.
“We support Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors in every way we can to welcome these soldiers home, whether that’s through donations we receive at this tournament or through our ongoing efforts to bring specialized homes to returning military veterans and their families.”
