Statesville Summer Service Project

In August, Statesville Plumbing partnered with American Standard and the Men’s Fraternity of Huntersville to upgrade the plumbing at the Shepherd’s Watch Life Skill Workshop. The Shepherd’s Watch Workshop is utilized to teach life skills such as career assessment, money management, team building and personal health to school groups, youth groups, adults and the foster care community.
