As owners of local businesses, both of us have a strong commitment to give back to Lincoln. One of the reasons Lincoln is such a great place is due to the tremendous philanthropic support our community provides to nonprofit organizations. The Lincoln community has been an asset to our families and businesses in so many ways, and we want to share our success to make Lincoln a better place for generations to come. We feel a responsibility to 'pay it forward' and have developed a culture at our companies and with our family that encourages the donation of time, talent and treasure.
