Turtle Wings featured in Helping Hand Article – It was May 11th of this year. I saw an article in the paper about a youth football program office that had been vandalized. It happened right down the street from our company. At the company, we had been talking about ways to help our community. I thought it would be great for us to help this football team. Not to mention, I’m a big football fan.
We searched for the coach, Charles Penny. We called him up and asked him if we could help him out. I don’t think he believed us until we showed up with five computers and monitors.
He told us that he needed some furniture for the office. We got him that as well. The vandals had popped and destroyed the footballs. We are underwriting those, too. And as soon as the team’s practices start up, we’ll be there.
-I think football is especially good for kids who grow up in a neighborhood that’s not so easy. To have a coach telling a kid that he did a good job is something that could change that kid’s life.
