As the demand for skilled workers in construction continues to grow, Bosch Power Tools is stepping up to donate a range of its tools to skilled trades training programs across the U.S. in honor of Giving Tuesday, according to a recent news release. Valued at approximately $20,000, the donation, which includes power tools, measuring tools, and accessories, will go to four high school and pre-college construction trade programs in various parts of the country to help support students’ learning and development in the trades with hands-on skill-building experiences in the classroom.
“As a company dedicated to hard work on the jobsite and in the community, we recognize the importance of investing in the local organizations that are empowering the workforce of tomorrow,” said Teresa Sabatino, Director of Brand Marketing Power Tools North America. “Bosch Power Tools is proud to partner with these four distinguished trade school programs this Giving Tuesday to help ensure students are ready for work their first day on a professional jobsite, while also doing our part to help address the skilled trades gap.”
To support the next generation of workers as they enter in-demand careers in the skilled trades, Bosch Power Tools identified ROC Construction Skills Training Center in Charlotte, the Career Institute North Trade High School Program in Dallas, the Construction Careers Academy in San Antonio and the Building Construction Academy at Bowers/Whitley in Tampa, as recipient organizations of its Giving Tuesday initiative.
