Laborers Local 663 this week donated a total of $2,000 to the Head Start Smiles program at eight head start centers around southwest Missouri. We visited with kids and teachers in Reeds Spring, Branson, Ozark, Marshfield, Springfield, Monett, Mt. Vernon and Bolivar. Our friends with Carpenters Local 978 matched our donation and joined us at the head starts we visited.
Thanks to Local 663 business agents Tim Price and Derick Barnes, and members Terry Jensen, Dale Jones, Matt Manes, Brandon Burkhart, Cody Guerin, Jackie Glenn, and Chase Murray; retirees Larry Wolfe and Randy Guerin, and contractor Mary Beth Hartman from Hunter Chase for helping with the presentations and for spending time with these very special kids.
