Although our tradition in America is to send a gift basket and a card, this holiday season is different. Our industries and the citizens of our country are facing one of the most difficult periods of a lifetime.
This year, WAV Group has chosen to make a charitable donation to Feeding America on behalf of our clients. In choosing Feeding America, we reviewed many options on the basis of Organizational Efficiency, and Domestic focus.
