Here is a report and pics of what our Women’s Committee have been doing in our communities.
The IBEW LU1003 Women’s Committee donate their skills and time wherever they are needed. Some of the projects they have volunteered on are residential wiring for the elderly, cooking and bringing meals to terminally ill people in their homes, fixing other contractors’ substandard workmanship, yard cleanup, dump runs and sometimes just sitting chatting and listening trying to bring hope to people. When we are offered money in exchange for help, we say we are with the IBEW Women’s Committee and just trying to give back. It is all volunteer work and brings us closer together as a Women’s Committee. Most people can’t believe we are electricians and are so happy to to meet not just one but two or more at a time. Volunteering in our communities from Nelson down to Trail brings a great sense of pride of who we are plus a somber sense of humbleness that many people have a very tough time in life.
