Building Wheelchairs for Veterans

If you’re looking for a way to support your community, consider an event to build wheelchairs for our country’s disabled veterans!  We took time away from one of our regular business meetings to help the Disabled American Veterans (DAV). Not only did it help them and show our appreciation, but it also served as a wonderful team building activity for our employees.  Take a look!
