Eastern Contractors Association, Inc. Assisting Albany Airport Employees

Eastern Contractors Association, Inc. (ECA) will deliver more than 200 turkeys to Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and Air Traffic Control employees at Albany International Airport at 9:30 a.m. today.

“We’ve watched these employees continue to show up for work these past four weeks without receiving pay and wanted to recognize them for their dedication to maintaining safety at our airport and in the sky,” said Todd Helfrich, ECA’s President and CEO. “Our organization felt this was one way to show our appreciation, by giving each of the TSA officers and air traffic controllers something that they could take home to their families in order to help them out during this difficult time.”

Along with ECA’s overall contribution, additional support also comes from the following member companies: A.M. Contracting, LLC; A.O.W. Associates, Inc.; Burt Crane and Rigging; Crawford Door & Window Sales; J.J. Curran & Son, Inc.; Duncan & Cahill, Inc.; Sam Greco Construction, Inc.; Jersen Construction Group; MLB Construction Services, LLC; J.H. Maloy, Inc; Marinello Construction Co., Inc.; Mid-State Industries, LTD; RBM Guardian Fire Protection, Inc.; Schaap Moving & Storage; TEC Protective Coatings, Inc.; and V. Zappala & Co., Inc.

“This idea all came together within just the past few days and I am proud at how quickly our members volunteered their support to make this happen,” Helfrich added. “There wasn’t a single hesitation, as everyone jumped at the chance to assist in this effort.”
