The recent tragedy in Joplin, MO hit close to home for many of our employees. Our Senior Project Manager, Tony Papish, decided he was going to help in anyway he could. With large stacks of donations from family and friends, Tony headed out over Memorial Day Weekend to help survivors pick up the pieces.
The trip was successful, but also heart-wrenching. The fact remains that the City of Joplin will need more help in the months and years to come, long after the media has moved on to other stories.
If you would like to help with relief efforts, here are a few options:
