Oregon Tradeswomen is saddened at the loss of our sister Katie Kuchta. Katie was a 2015 OTW TACC graduate, 2017 Woman on the Rise Award Winner, and an incredibly positive force in the Laborer’s family. She will be missed dearly by so many.
Many in our community have asked how to best provide support to Katie’s family during this difficult time. Oregon Tradeswomen is collecting donations on behalf of Katie’s friend, Ashley. All funds will benefit Katie’s son, Stephen, who has a dream of going to the Northwest Lineman’s College in Meridian, Idaho.
Shirts created in memory of Katie are now available for purchase to support Stephen as well.
Ashley shared with us, “All donations will go directly into an account that will pay Stephen’s admission fees, tuition, certifications, and living expenses. Let’s all rally and show our love for Katie by setting her son up with this opportunity.”
Any unused funds will be donated to battered women’s shelters.
