Sadly on April 27, 2019, we lost two Iron Workers due to a job site accident in Seattle. To assist the Brothers’ families through this tragedy Ironworkers USA Credit Union set up a donation fund. We are extremely honored to report that an outpouring of support has been seen from contributors across the nation for those we have lost.
Thank you for the kind words and continued support for the families and communities that have lost these two brave Iron Worker Brothers. It has been heartwarming to see the overwhelming love and support for Travis Corbet and Andrew Yoder, showing the special bond our labor unions and contractors have here and from across the country. The brother and sisterhood has been amazing to witness. An outpouring of support has been seen from contributors across the nation, both from union members and just generous individuals who truly cared about these two people.
Proudly as of today, Iron Workers, Contractors and Union Trades Nationwide have helped raise a total of over $250,000 for the Ironworkers Families. 100% of these donations will go directly to the families of Travis Corbet and Andrew Yoder! We can only hope this will help ease the financial burden, allowing the families time to grieve and begin the healing process.
“I think this is an amazing show of support and love from our members, ironworkers throughout the country, other trades, and the general public. This is another perfect example of People Helping People and UNION STRONG, the Brother and Sisterhood shown has really touched my heart!!!!”, shared Teri Robinson, CEO of Ironworkers USA Credit Union.
“From our family to yours we offer our condolences, thoughts and deepest prayers. Our hearts ache for you and this great loss you are having to face. May the Lord above hold your hearts in his hands.” – Michael Huffman, Silverdale, WA
