It Takes a Village to Make a Donation Possible
The box truck was slated for trade-in. UPS employee Gary Brueggmann, during one of his daily deliveries to Woodmeister, mentioned to Dee Wilson, Woodmeister purchasing agent, that Cherylann Gengel had a wish list of needs. A box truck was the first item on
used as a container for shipping much needed materials. Mr. Brueggmann's suggestion started a series of volunteers to get the truck ready – from Woodmeister employees to Sunny Side Ford – who all helped prep the truck for the trip to Haiti. The truck will be driven to Miami in the coming weeks and then shipped to a port in Haiti.
Kim Goodnow upon meeting the Gengel's at Woodmeister said. “We are delighted to help the Gengels and bring awareness to their amazing work building this orphanage for the children of Haiti. "It's really nice of Woodmeister to step up with this donation," Len Gengel said. "Without the generosity of so many people, we would not be where we are today." The orphanage is scheduled to open later this year.
