Texas Carpenters Help Neighbors Beat the Heat

It can get a little hot in Texas in the summertime, but the Central South Carpenters and a local legislator worked together to bring some relief to those in need of beating the heat.


Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, who represents the 18th District of Texas, coordinates a “Beat the Heat” program, where she helps senior citizens, veterans and the disabled in the greater Houston area who do not have air conditioning get a window unit installed.


The first installation for this summer recently completed, and was aided by five volunteers from the Central South Council’s Local 551: Kenneth Fontenot, Maria Robles, Elias Olague, Juan Lozano, and Charles Thomas.
