Ending 2020 with a Bang: We Thank Milwaukee Tool for Their Generous Donation!

Wednesday, December 30, 2020

The New Year is upon us! As we close out 2020 and welcome 2021, we would like to take a moment to reflect on one of the many things we're grateful for--namely, our extended WECA Family and the various forms of support they provide to ensure that WECA can seamlessly deliver its premier electrical industry education in California and Arizona.

Our 2020-21 WECEF Lab Donation Scoreboard is an excellent example of this generosity and support.

On November 1, Cristian Jimenez and Trevor Lewis of Milwaukee Tools kicked off the 2020-21 WECEF Lab Donation Scoreboard with a donation of $27,740 of hand tools! As soon as we received Milwaukee's donation, we were excited to distribute it amongst all five of our training facilities across California and Arizona, in anticipation of hands-on classroom use by our Apprentices when it is safe to resume in-person instruction.

"In a year like this, we're humbled--as always--by the donations we've received to help provide our Apprentices with the engaging learning experience that they deserve," said Jimmie Slemp, WECA's Lead Instructor and Lab Facilities Manager. "And, in the spirit of the holiday season, it is heartwarming to see the electrical industry--and those who help supply the electrical industry with necessary tools and equipment--come together to ensure that our industries continue to be the backbones of their communities during a time when that's more important than ever."

Thank you in advance to our donors--the learning experiences of our apprentices and students are greatly enhanced with your support. We wish you all a Happy New Year, and look forward to a brighter year ahead!
