In honor of its 110th anniversary in 2016, H.B. Frazer Company, a founding member of the National Electrical Contractors Association’s Penn-Del-Jersey Chapter, donated $110,000 in labor and materials to renovate St. Malachy School in Philadelphia.
Company executives, project managers, foremen, journeymen and apprentice electricians volunteered their time to help with the project, which included light installation, branch wiring, electrical construction, electrical engineering and site cleanup.
St. Malachy, a local elementary school in North Philadelphia, closed in 2012 and was purchased two years later by Independence Mission Schools -- a nonprofit organization that provides Catholic-based education to inner-city children from pre-K to 8th grade.
In addition to the school’s reopening being a symbol of positive development in the community, the school had the added honor of being selected as a canvas for a commemorative mural in honor of Pope Francis' visit to Philadelphia in 2015. The mural was signed by Pope Francis, marking a historic and memorable moment for the community. H.B. Frazer's commitment to help with the school's renovation also shows the impact its members have in the communities it serves.
Congratulations to H.B. Frazer Company on its 110th anniversary and a job well done!
