CATT Community Projects gives Truckee’s Old Jail new stain

CATT Community Project, the philanthropic arm of the Contractors Association of Truckee Tahoe (CATT), provides design and construction assistance to nonprofits and governmental agencies to “give back” and act as a conduit for funds, materials, volunteerism and project coordination.

Structures deemed beneficial to the community are selected.

Recently, Josh Root of Root of Design Electric, acted as project manager to stain the Truckee-Donner Historical Society’s Old Jail Museum on Jibboom Street.

Root, along with Jim Easterbrook, Easterbrook Painting, Inc.; Robert Cattaneo, United Paint – Stain and Lacquer; Ryan Swenson, Simpson Strong-Tie; Nancy Bruton and Truckee Paint Mart donated time and materials.

“It was a wonderful experience to work with our fellow CATT members and volunteers from the community on this historic project,” said Root. “A special thank you to Nancy Bruton, a member of our community, who participated purely to give back. All of our projects require time and effort. Many hands make light work. Please join CATT Community Project as we continue to benefit our community with projects like these.”

CATT Community Project is a 501c(3) non-profit, charitable organization established in October 1999 as a separate but related arm of the Contractors Association of Truckee Tahoe, governed by a 10-member Board of Directors that meets monthly.
