Nari of Silicon Valley Annual “Bicycle Build” for Turning Wheels for Kids.

For the last few years, members of the Silicon Valley Chapter of NARI [National Association of the Remodeling Industry] have volunteered to assemble bicycles for a Christmas giveaway to needy kids. Who would have known that John, a contractor, can assemble bicycles! This event is sponsored by Turning Wheels For Kids who fundraise, so as to buy bicycles and determine the children in our area that are most in need.

AYSO Soccer Equipment Shed Repair

When one of our clients, who has been active in the AYSO soccer organization since his kids were very young, wanted to help fix an equipment shed that was falling apart, we decided to help.  Our guys love soccer, and this was a great opportunity to give back to the local community, what could be more perfect.  Everyone chipped in to fix the door, install a new lock and give it some new paint.  Now the kids can get back to playing soccer, knowing that their equipment will be safe and dry.
