Carhartt Supports Skilled Trades with Labor Day Donation
All online sales on September 4 to fund Team Rubicon’s inaugural TRades Academy
As the demand for skilled workers across the U.S. reaches fever pitch – and the industry at large expected to grow 10 percent by 2028 fueled by emerging technology1, changing infrastructure, $18 billion-per-year climate disasters and other factors2 – Carhartt is championing the hardest-working community organizations empowering the workforce of tomorrow.
Through its “For the Love of Labor” program – a bi-annual initiative that supports nonprofit organizations as they educate, train and place workers into meaningful skilled trades – Carhartt is donating all sales from Carhartt.com and Reworked.Carhartt.com on Labor Day, September 4, and dedicating its Fall 2023 grant to support veteran-led nonprofit Team Rubicon and its forthcoming TRades Academy program.
Expected to continue developing over the next five years, Team Rubicon’s TRades Academy seeks to train military veterans transitioning to civilian life – as well as other workers – in disaster-standard licensed contracting skills like carpentry, electrical, plumbing, heating, ventilation and air conditioning so they can help rebuild homes in the communities that need it most.
The inspiration behind the TRades Academy was born from one of Team Rubicon’s missions to rebuild safe and resilient homes in communities affected by disasters. With a highly-skilled volunteer force of 150,000 individuals and counting, Team Rubicon works to give military veteran volunteers the opportunity to continue service alongside first responders and civilians, as well as provide avenues towards a renewed sense of purpose, community and identity.
