Bill Peterson gave it his all during our "Give it Your All" program!
Fort Atkinson, WI - February 24, 2017
Bill Peterson has been with Badger Basement Systems for 3 ½ years, and was the winner of the “Give It Your All” program for the service department. As part of this accomplishment, Bill was given the task of picking a charitable organization to which Badger Basement Systems Inc. will donate $500.00. Bill had the unique experience recently, of volunteering for a week with the Glenmary Home Missioners at Joppa Mountain in Tennessee. Glenmary Home Missioners is a Catholic society, who is dedicated to serving the spiritual and material needs of poverty stricken individuals living throughout the Appalachia and in the south. Bill’s work, during the week he was there, consisted of providing his construction skills to help build small cabins in which mission volunteers stay in while they are providing volunteer/mission work and time to the program. In listening to Bill Peterson talk about his unique experience with the mission work, it is obvious that it had a very large impact on him spiritually. Glenmary Home Missioners pamphlet states their “goal is to broaden volunteers’ understanding of the causes of poverty, oppression and injustice—and how their life choices can impact these issues.” It is our honor to donate $500.00 to the cause of the Glenmary Home Missioners, in the name of Bill Peterson.
During his stay there, Bill was fortunate enough to get to spend some time with a local store owner who is also a Master Potter. People from all over, including some famous people, have sought him out for his work. Bill was amazed by what outstanding people he had the pleasure to meet. He told us that in many ways, this was a life changing experience for him. We are so proud of the work that Bill did while he was there and the impact that his donation will make to this great organization.
