I grew up in a family of several generations of people who work for the benefit of children in the community. We have volunteered and supported children at United Way, Little Red Schoolhouse, Camp Fire, Little League, our church, and the Navy & Marine Corps Relief. We've been blessed and we want to continue to give back. We have chosen St. Jude's Hospital for Children to help in their fight to cure children's cancers. A percentage of labor on each job will be donated to St. Jude's Hospital. View their website at the link below to get more information about their valuable work. I encourage you to match my gift for the children's sake and thank you.
