  • The LeVeque Tower was lit up on November 28th and 29th for LSS Faith Mission. This was a great honor as the tower only changes its lights six to eight times a year.
  • Sourced over 6000 tangible goods including sheets, towels, toiletries and many other tangible items.
  • Delivered a brand new Hobart Edge 12 Meat Slicer, valued at 2,000, with the combined efforts of Brad and Rodney Wasserstrom, The Hobart Company, Archie And Duncan Griffin, and Eric Clark on November 30th along with the other tangible goods.

"It was a surprise when Next Level Trainings contacted us in late October and told us their plans. When the team over-delivered on their promise and in such a short period of time, a simple 'thank you' seemed inadequate. We are truly in awe of these leaders and Next Level Trainings," said Jennifer Hamilton, Director of Communications Lutheran Social Services.
