My need and situation

I am a former business owner, father and cancer survivor who is trying to make a new start. I love welding and from the minute I started, I knew it was the right career choice for me.

My goals are to get the AWS welding certification, become a tradesman and join a union, and to learn about welding as much as possible.

I need a helmet, welding gloves, welding jacket, and steel toe boots.

Meeting this need will help me because I need the proper safely equipment in order to interview for potential jobs. I also need the equipment to keep me safe on the job.

I am a Program Coordinator Intern and have known KC through the welding program, here at Jane Addams Resource Corporation (JARC). The welding program is a 14 week, 350 hour program where trainees learn the fundamentals of Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW or “MIG”) processes that are used in manufacturing. KC on the fast track on finding a job but he needs help in doing so. KC is a hard worker and I want to help him with all the materials he needs for his potential new job. It would be wonderful to see him receive the help!
