Jonathan from Chicago, IL

I'm a veteran looking to build a home for my son. I need gear to work in welding!

I've trained in welding, but without equipment I'll have a challenging time finding a job. Employers expect you to bring boots and a helmet.


I am a United States Air Force veteran switching career paths into welding. I am also a single father trying my best to set a solid foundation for my son's future. I have trained in welding at JARC.

My goals are to eventually have a family business of my own. I plan on being able to provide friends and family with job opportunities.

I need boots, a welding helmet and protective gear to start looking for work as a welder.

Meeting this need will help me because without the proper equipment, I will be delayed on landing a job and securing my goals.

Thank you for helping Jonathan fund this need.

Jonathan has served our country and is now working hard to be an excellent provider for his son. He is focused on his welding craft and is a great asset to our program. He is ready to move to the next step of training and is in need of safety gear. Once he has the gear he needs, he can get him certified and help him to find a welding career!
