The world would be more awesome if more kids like Vinny and his friends existed. Vinny is a teenager from a local high school with the typical high schools schedule: school, sports, and hanging out with friends. Now, the usual high school mentality, is focused on hanging with friends not installing new hardwood floors or sitting in house of traffic.

Lucky for us, we hit the lottery when it comes to high school volunteers. Vinny and his crew dedicate their after school hours to come into the TWR office and help wherever they can. They spent an entire week putting in new hardwood flooring for the office, which gave us a fresh new look. Vinny runs errands for us and sometimes gets stuck in rush hour traffice but we've never heard him complain, yet. These boys are now the handymen of the office and step in wherever we need them.

No one told these boys that they had to help, they didn't get in trouble and this is their punishment, they simply took it into their own hands to help out their community. These boys are amazing edition to the team and help keep the morale up in the office. Everyone needs a little friend to help them get by, even at Together We Rise.
