Plumbing Industry Council contractors, supplier members and members of Plumbers’ and Pipefitters’ Local No. 562 joined together in providing plumbing repairs and home renovations for elderly, low-income and disabled residents in the St. Louis area. Fifty-nine families benefited from the time, talent and donations of local union plumbing contractors as part of the annual Rebuilding Together St. Louis event held on April 19. 

Contractor members of the Plumbing Industry Council donated more than 60 service trucks loaded with tools. A wide array of plumbing products (sinks, faucets, toilets, etc.) was also donated by Plumbing Industry Council affiliate (supplier) members. And more than 300 members of Plumbers’ and Pipefitters Local No. 562 donated their time and talent to assist those in need.

The homes for Rebuilding Together St. Louis are selected after being referred to the program by churches, neighborhood and community service organizations. Individual homeowners can also request services of the program. Applications are prioritized based upon needs and qualifications before final selections are made.
