Local 805 Makes A Wish Come True:
Local 805 – in partnership with the Make A Wish Foundation – built a playhouse for a Santa Maria girl. Katalina Covarrubias was diagnosed with Lymphoblastic Lymphoma in 2020. Her dream of wanting a private play space came to a reality when her own 80-sq ft. playhouse was revealed to her in the backyard of her home. Volunteer Carpenters from Local 805 built the playhouse for the Covarrubias family.
