Fellow Member Needs Our Help
Updated On: Dec 08, 2020

One of our bricklayer members, Irvin Wheeler, and his family really need our help.  The apartment he and his family were living in was completely destroyed in a fire on December 4th.  Luckily, he, his wife Demetria and two daughters (Arianna, 6 years old and Rachel, 1 year old) escaped with their lives but everything else was lost. They literally got out with nothing but the shirts on their backs.

We are hoping to help with any donations of clothing or cash. A Go Fund Me account has been established, if you are able to donate something, anything, below is the link:

If you wish to and can donate any clothing, below please find their sizes. Any donations of clothing can be directed to Mike Volpentesta. You can also contact Mike at (630) 967-4900 if you have any questions.
