    Construction Trades Teaching Facility

    Urban Impact is outfitting a new space where they will teach construction trades.  They need help in purchasing and installing the following:

    • 2 – 100,000BTU  furnaces (the space currently has not heat)
    • 1 – 100 amp Sub panel
    • Branch circuits for woodworking equipment, lighting, receptacles, etc.

    These are actually immediate needs. 


    In our Construction Trades Program ,we teach kids how to use tools and they built carpentry based projects.
