Local Union 79, is continuing to work with the HEART 9/11 organization, helping an Iraq war veteran and his family renovate their home.
Chief Petty Officer Colin Redy, USCG (Ret.) is an Iraq War veteran and a 9/11 First Responder, with a family of six.
The group completed the home renovation through the program called Hope For The Warriors in Brick, NJ. HEART 9/11 provided a highly skilled volunteer workforce from Laborers Local 79, who took two weeks to frame, insulate, sheetrock and weatherize the Redy family’s home.
