Thank you to everyone who attended the “Passion & Partnership” fundraising event! Together, over $20,000 was raised to bridge the technical talent gap to the trades of plumbing, heating, cooling and electrical.

The event featured a panel of residential service providers: Geno Caccia, CEO of Caccia Plumbing; Lauren Martin, Vice President of Seaside Plumbing; and, Claire Ferrara, Owner and President of Standard Heating & Air Conditioning. Explore The Trades would like to acknowledge their excitement and expertise in building community partnerships that enhance recruiting into the trades.

A special thank you Ferguson for their partnership in premiering the “Explore The Trades Skills Lab, Built by Ferguson” program. Explore The Trades is pleased to introduce this pilot program exclusively to Nexstar Network members as they commit to building partnerships – and technicians – in their own communities.
