PCCA lends helping, heartfelt hand

Representing the Penn College Construction Association, School of Construction & Design Technologies students and faculty deliver on a service project. Seated (from left) are Michael J. Deragon, of Fort Washington; Kachine L. Fry, of Butler; and Anthony B. Harris, of Reading. Back row (from left) are Barney A. Kahn IV, building construction technology instructor; Hayden N. Beiter, of Williamsport; Matthew M. Hober, of Basking Ridge, N.J.; and Jared J. Stiefel, of Norristown.

A holiday wish by the Ronald McDonald House in Danville Inc. –  a home away from home for families with ill children – has been granted by the Penn College Construction Association, which purchased the materials, then designed, constructed and donated a picnic table for the facility’s playground. “PCCA did an amazing job and created a picnic table and seating for our families to enjoy during the warm weather. However, the faculty and students’ kindness goes beyond the picnic table,” RMH executive director Michael J. Turlis said. “They donated a place where families can sit and experience time outside away from the hospital and to gather their thoughts. They donated a place where a family can have a meal together, which allows them to keep a sense of normalcy during a very difficult time of their lives.  They donated a place where families will gather to help each other cope. For these reasons, we cannot express our gratitude enough to the Penn College Construction Association!”
