January 12, 2023 – This week the KCA Safety Committee hosted its bimonthly virtual meeting that featured a presentation by Steve McCarty of McConkey Insurance & Benefits titled Effective Accident Investigations – Going Beyond Blame. Great topic and an excellent speaker that really delivered some fine points for contractors to think about when accidents occur. Plus, Mr. McCarty provided some helpful resources.

Next on the agenda for the KCA: the MLK Day of Service. This year marks Harrisburg’s 14th MLK Day of Service. On Monday, January 16, 2023 at 9 AM, the the KCA will join the Wildheart Team for the Love The Hill Day event. This event will be a total cleanup to prepare the Allison Hill community for this year’s activities.
The KCA is proud to help the Wildheart organization next week. An initiative of Wildheart is the Love The Hill Days, with the hill being Allison Hill. Some notable accomplishments of this organization which started in 2017 include: 2,333 volunteers providing 42,281 manhours to remove 2.3 million pounds of trash, 117 abandoned structures boarded up and 278 planter boxes constructed.
The KCA team of volunteers look forward to joining the Wildheart team on Monday to improve those aforementioned stats. We hope that you can join us. I find that giving back to the community is an excellent way to recharge your mind as you can temporarily put aside your worries and concerns associated with your daily work issues and focus making someone else’s day better. Well, at least I feel more productive and energized after volunteering for a good cause when I return to the office. Give it a shot and see if you get that same boost when work resumes.
