Recently, the Michael & Son Cares Program, USO and K95 joined forces to help a military family with home repairs and renovations. The recipients had purchased a farm in Southern Virginia with the intention of building a center for at risk inner city teens. Shane Drinkwater, the recipient of the award and active duty serviceman had longed dreamed of building a place where children could come and experience the quite of the country. “This is something my wife and I have wanted to do for a long time; it could not have been possible without the help of Michael & Son Services” said Shane Drinkwater. The project also included other home improvement companies who generously donated their expertise and materials to help with the project. The recipient’s received a new HVAC system and numerous appliance repairs.
When Proud Son & Owner of Michael & Son Services, Basim Mansour, set out to create the Cares foundation, he intended it to serve two purposes: To help families in the community who are in need and also to inspire others to do the same. “Helping the Drinkwaters achieve their dream of a building a youth center is exciting for us” said Mansour. “It almost feels as if it’s an extension of what we do with the Cares Program...here in Southern Virginia” continued Mansour.
