Lee

Have you ever shared Oreo cookies with a homeless man? I have! And believe it or not the experience was wonderful! The only thing missing from that moment was milk for our cookies lol.

It’s crazy how many times I’ve heard money being called the root of all evil. I totally disagree. Money isn't the problem, it’s people. Our greed and endless desires for money is what’s causing this so called “evil”. Money is a tool and like all tools it can used as a weapon, but I had … Continue reading Audre

Gary followed his dream as a trucker,  traveling all across America for more than … Continue reading Gary

I love my job, because the more people share with me, the more I realize how beautiful everyone truly is. Never judge a book by its cover.

Aletha

It's amazing how little I've heard the word "teamwork" flow through a crowd of employees. While division has become a great problem in our society, the work place is infected with selfishness and blaming. I can honestly say teamwork is important for Aletha, something we all can learn from. I've only known her for a … Continue reading Aletha
