Thank you for your consideration to help 'ONE OF OUR OWN' within the construction industry when a worker has lost their life on a construction Jobsite and leaves behind children and a spouse. It is a difficult time for anyone to lose a loved one, but the head of household is a drastic measure when defendants are at a loss, both emotionally and financially. Thank you for thinking of others in their time of need.
