Manhattan Affiliate Office Located on 395 Hudson Street at the New York District Council of Carpenters Building By Way of Generous Donation

The New York City and Vicinity Carpenters Labor Management Cooperation Trust Fund (Labor Management) has donated office space to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children's (NCMEC) Manhattan Affiliate Office. This benevolent support will pave the road for NCMEC's twofold goal of establishing a presence in New York City and developing support from the city's constituency base in order to continue providing its programs and services locally, nationally and internationally.

"Our organization is proud to play a pivotal role in spearheading the giving spirit of this city," said Michael Forde, Chairman of Labor Management and Executive Secretary Treasurer of the New York District Council of Carpenters. "We are pleased to welcome NCMEC to New York City as it builds out its establishment and fulfills its critical mission with the full support of our members."

"Labor Management and its members represent America's parents who believe in safeguarding our children's future. By partnering with NCMEC, we support their cause and look forward to making a difference together," stated Joseph Olivieri, Co-Chairman of Labor Management and Executive Director of the Association of Wall, Ceiling and Carpentry Industries of New York.

"We are truly thankful and excited to be partnering with Labor Management. Their generous gift allows for NCMEC Manhattan's infrastructure to be set up and running with speed and ease. Their generosity plays a big role in helping NCMEC focus on its mission of finding missing children and preventing child victimization," said Ernie Allen, CEO and president of NCMEC.

Stuart GraBois, Executive Director of New York District Council of Carpenters Benefit Funds and Brian O'Dwyer, Co-Council of Labor Management and Benefit Funds as well as Senior Partner at O'Dwyer & Bernstien, both of whom are NCMEC Manhattan Affiliate Advisory Board members, played a pivotal role in bridging the relationship between NCMEC and Labor Management.
