This has included promotional products, decorated clothing, logistical assistance and contributions for various events and activities.

Oppel thanked the foundation for the honor and said, “While we have the good fortune to work with many fine companies and organizations, working with the foundation truly is an opportunity to have an impact on people’s lives.”
