Today we had the privilege of presenting the Dee for Dentist Q2 Fills Good donation to the Nevada Paralyzed Veterans of America. This organization is dedicated to improving the quality of life for Veterans who have suffered spinal cord injury or disease resulting in paralysis. This was the biggest group we’ve ever hosted for a check presentation. Although you can’t see it in the picture, these veterans came with their families and it was just a great experience overall. It always strikes me how upbeat the people from these organizations are when we meet them. They are representing causes that are heartbreaking yet they are all so inspired and motivated to be doing something worthwhile and fulfilling.
This donation really meant a lot to Mike who has a lot of childhood friends that have served or are still serving and I know he was a little disappointed in the voter turnout for this Fills Good especially considering the huge turnout Fills Good got when the theme was animals. Mike really wanted some huge participation to show these soldiers how much we appreciate their sacrifice, but the Fills Good program is still pretty new so hopefully when this theme comes around again, we’ll be able to make that happen.
Thank you to the Nevada Paralyzed Veterans of America for coming down and allowing us to be participate in their organization.
