The Metropolitan Washington Association of Plumbing, Heating, Cooling Contractors (MWPHCC) participated in two rebuilding projects in April: the Christmas in April program in Prince George’s County (Md.), and Rebuilding Together in the Washington metro area. Both programs rely on community volunteers to repair homes of low-income homeowners, especially the elderly, disabled and families with children.

MWPHCC members were happy to volunteer in both Maryland and the District of Columbia when the need was expressed:Buckey Davis, Mark CrooksandDamon Hatcherof John C.
