The Community Service fund received payroll contributions totaling $3,433.50 in June, and the company match brought us to $6,867 in incoming funds. We now have 138 employee contributors. (Please contact Michele Collins or Ben Braun to begin contributing or to change an existing commitment.)
Crestwood Village – Small gifts were presented to residents at Crestwood Village in honor of Father’s Day. The $41.42 expenditure brightened the occasion for the senior community’s male residents.

THANK YOU RECOGNITION
We received a message of appreciation from Dan Bajor for the gift packages recently sent to the troops under his command. “A thank you for your generosity and time assembling the care packages for the troops. We just received a large box the other day. The timing could not have been better – it was a great morale booster for everyone. Please extend our gratitude to all those who helped contribute and coordinate… I appreciate everything American Structurepoint has done. It has certainly brought a dosage of normalcy.”
Dan also expressed his gratitude for the gifts sent to his family by the Architecture + Interiors Group. “Thank you again for the generosity. I think the burden of deployments is far greater with the families left home then those service members in country.”
