PROUD to support High School Entrepreneurial Classes!
Of all the worthy causes in which we participate, one of our favorites requires very little expense. Opportunities to speak to Business Marketing and High School Entrepreneurial classes are the greatest experiences of all. We get to explain and sell our concept to people who are not looking to buy, just looking to understand and learn. Strong customer service, a superb work staff, and the concept of quality over price are the pillars that support our organization. Teaching the importance of these practices to students equips them with the necessary tools to become competitive in any business. These would be expensive lessons for them to learn on their own.

By pooling our contributions together with other corporations, we can have a larger inpact on a cause like cancer research or helping to fund new equipment for medical centers.
