In honor of Giving Tuesday, Bosch Power Tools is empowering the future of the trades by providing tool donations to four high school and pre-college construction trade programs across the U.S.
Valued at approximately $20,000, the donation of power tools, measuring tools and accessories is designed to support students’ learning and development with hands-on skill-building experiences in the classroom, as the demand for skilled workers across the U.S. reaches new heights.
“As a company dedicated to hard work on the job site and in the community, we recognize the importance of investing in the local organizations that are empowering the workforce of tomorrow,” said Teresa Sabatino, director of Brand Marketing Power Tools North America. “Bosch Power Tools is proud to partner with these four distinguished trade school programs this Giving Tuesday to help ensure students are ready for work their first day on a professional job site, while also doing our part to help address the skilled trades gap.”
To support the next generation of workers as they enter in-demand careers in the skilled trades, Bosch Power Tools identified ROC Construction Skills Training Center in Charlotte, the Career Institute North Trade High School Program in Dallas, the Construction Careers Academy in San Antonio, and the Building Construction Academy at Bowers/Whitley in Tampa, as recipient organizations of its Giving Tuesday initiative.
Bosch Power Tools’ donation of tools includes a wide range of equipment, from drills and saws to batteries and chargers, all of which are essential for hands-on training and skill development. The donation follows similar acts of giving in Dallas and Tampa, where Bosch recently donated tools and time as they worked alongside volunteers from the regional Habitat for Humanity teams. Efforts in both communities were impactful for all parties, resulting in new windows and doors, to complete interior framing for new family homes.
“Our school is incredibly grateful for Bosch Power Tools’ donation and continued partnership, knowing we both value hard work and strive to empower the workers of tomorrow,” said Krista Ackles, VP of the San Antonio Construction Careers Academy High School.
