"We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give." - Winston Churchill
This is something we couldn't agree more with at HD Insurance. This is why our motto has transformed over the last few years into "Helping Those Who Help Others." We know that the more we give back and do for others, the more we receive in return and that just because what we receive aren't tangible goods or carry a dollar amount, it's the feelings and memories that are invaluable. We try our best to give our time to various organizations whose sole purpose is to help those in need.
On July 22nd The Mecca Gym hosted the 2nd Annual Mecca's Strongest Man / Woman competition at their gym in Meridian. All proceeds from the event were donated to the Wishes For Warriors nonprofit organization. The sole purpose of this wonderful group is to help combat wounded veterans not just get back into life but to help them start enjoying it as well. Many of the men and women they help went through near death experiences and / or life altering injuries. They do things like hunting, fishing, shooting and more activities that get the veterans back out into nature doing things they've either done before and love or never had the chance to experience at all.
Our newest hire Drew is a big supporter of the Mecca Gym because it's a local business that is owned and operated by some great people so when he was asked to volunteer at this event it was a no brainer. While at the event he met Cameron, a volunteer for Wishes For Warriors that explained the purpose of their organization and how they show veterans that there is life after combat. He also mentioned that they are in the process of moving the headquarters to Boise from Southern California which is very exciting because the nonprofit sector in Boise is growing very quickly giving all of us the opportunity to help those who help others!
