The Tower Industry Family Support Charitable Foundation is having something of a coming out party next week at the CTIA Super Mobility Week show in Las Vegas.
The foundation was created “to help provide financial assistance to family members of a severely injured, permanently disabled, or deceased tower worker injured or killed in an accident stemming from working at heights on communication structures or other on the job related activities that tower workers are involved in on a daily basis,” a release explained. Tower work is known as one of the most dangerous jobs.
It will formally launch at a reception and press conference, Sept. 10, starting at 5:15 p.m. at the Sands Expo and Convention Center. The foundation plans to announce a major gift at the press conference. It is a 501(c)(3), tax deductible operation.
