Members of the St. Louis Chapter of the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) have been doing their part to support the law community over the years.
Late last month, as a part of the St. Louis Electrical Connection, NECA members joined the professional soccer club Saint Louis FC on a fundraiser for two holiday season programs.
For the third year in a row, the Electrical Connection and Saint Louis FC hosted a “Christmas in July” fundraiser at Toyota Stadium in Fenton. The team squared off against Bethlehem FC and won 3-0. The charitable event benefited “Stop with a Cop” projects in Ferguson and St. Francois County.
The Electrical Connection is a labor-management partnership of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 1 and NECA’s St. Louis Chapter.
The “Shop with a Cop” program was reinvigorated with the soccer fundraiser in 2016. The Electrical Connection has donated more than $75,000 to support both programs since 1993.
