The Merit Shop Training and Research Center was established several years ago, by Associated Builders & Contractors, Keystone Chapter, (ABC Keystone) as a non-profit fund whose mission is to provide financial assistance to students who have chosen construction-related career paths. The Center is funded by members of the Chapter, who have taken upon themselves the responsibility to be proactive in assisting men and women in their preparation for this industry. The Center has awarded over $494,000 since its inception. This program would not be possible without all of the individuals that contribute to the Center. Thank you!
