 “It’s not just about donating the tools, it’s about getting in front of the students and educating them as well on the different type of technologies that go into you know not only making the power tools, but the safety measures and things that you need to be aware of when you’re utilizing them, at the end of the day we want these young men and women to be productive in society but also return home safely.”
