Why I Support SAWs

Rob with his wife Sandi at the 2020 Polo at Sunset event. The French family made and sold “stick” ponies to benefit SAWs.

I wanted to share just a few of the reasons why SAW’s holds and will always hold a special place in my heart. First and foremost SAW’s is a God centered organization. All throughout the Bible were told to care for the less fortunate. Jesus’ teachings in particular tell us that we should not only be aware of but to actively reach out and help those in need; SAW’s does just that. They do this by not only providing ramps for those in need of help with regards to accessibility, but also by providing opportunities for volunteers to experience firsthand the joy of helping others.

I have two younger brothers who both have MS, and I have seen firsthand the challenges of accessibility that people can face. public access. Providing access to individual homes for people without means continues to be a challenge. SAW’s strives to meet this challenge and truly does provide freedom one ramp at a time.

Our company along with other corporations and organizations have the opportunity to build SAWs ramps and let their people not only carry lumber, lineup ramp parts, cut wood and drive screws, but more importantly to see the completed result of their labor. In just half a day with the entire team’s effort, there is a ramp that goes from sidewalk level to the front door. This little building project not only allows someone to get from inside of their home to the outside world unassisted, but invariably touches the heart of every participant involved in making the project a reality. This meaningful accomplishment requires many hands including financial sponsors, referring agencies, talented/dedicated individuals in the office, the fabrication shop and in the field.

Our company has been blessed by God on so many levels and we have made a commitment to give 10% of our profits to people in need. And we can think of no better partner for our support and involvement than SAW’s. The work done by this organization truly does reflect God’s love. It is through the endless hours of effort by so many people, that lives are changed forever. I am grateful that I have had an opportunity to not only learn of SAW’s work, donate to SAW’s but most importantly to actively participate in their mission
