In addition to the spirit of the season and wishing everyone a happy holiday, we would like to share what some of our SPN’s are doing in their community. We hope you enjoy reading and sharing their stories.

From Steven Meisner:
Buck & Affiliates Insurance is proud to announce we are supporting a wonderful Veterans Group, Burning Boots Trail Club that is ran by Veterans for Veterans. The purpose of the Burning Boots Trail Club is to provide wilderness excursion trips and activities for Veterans, including those who could otherwise not afford, or participate on their own. The Burning Boots Trail Club was founded by two army Veterans Kellie Richardson & Steven Meisner. There activities include, but are not limited to, backpacking, hiking, mountain climbing, snowshoeing, canoe/kayak events, cabin/camp retreats, hunting, shooting and fishing. Please visit their web site today www.burningboots.org and learn more about this great group of Veterans.

From Seth Robinson:
As part of an overall 30 Days to Wellness program at JHTNA (North American Matrix brand headquarters), employees participated in donating money to the Toys for Tots campaign. An upcoming holiday party will feature a food drive for the local food pantry, with JHTNA matching all employee donations of $1 per pound of food!
Power Systems, Inc., in conjunction with the Boys and Girls Club of the Tennessee Valley, has granted over 100 Angel Tree wishes to the Tennessee Valley’s neediest children, this past week. Wishes range from much-needed clothing and special needs gifts, to other wished-for toys. Julie and Bruno Pauletto, Owners of Power Systems, take pride in what the company is doing, saying “we are so blessed to be able to give back to our community. Every child should have their wishes come true at Christmas time.”
From Tim Block:
Precor believes in the overwhelming returns of sharing. The company is active within its community within Washington State during the holidays to spread joy. For the past 14 years, Precor has participated in a holiday giving with Secret Harbor, where employees bring in an unwrapped toy for a foster child. The employees bring in canned goods to donate to Northwest Harvest, a nonprofit organization dedicated to hunger relief in Washington.
