Doug Sweet's Tree Incident
Our teammate, Doug Sweet, had a serious accident while cutting a tree last week. He can't remember the details - and no one witnessed the accident to tell the tale - but it ended with a broken hip, broken ribs, cracked vertebrae, and a very massive bruise on his noggin. He'll have a long road ahead to recovery - the better part of a year.
Doug is the director of Black Diamond Camps (Many of you will remember this used to be called Camp Berachah). He and his wife, Shuvawn, live at the camp. Shuvawn works as a Speech Pathologist in the Kent School District.
We'd like to help put some meals into their freezer so Doug can manage on his own while Shuvawn is at work. If you'd like to help, please donate below!

About Helping Teammates..
With a community of over 200 members, unfortunate incidents happen every so often. A team member has an accident, or an illness or death in the family, etc.
When this happens, we find out what he/she or the family needs and pitch in to provide it. Teammates can - and certainly do - offer help in other ways, but this has been a way for anyone on the team- no matter how far away or how busy they are - can help if they choose to.
It's completely optional of course - there's no pressure to participate.
If you know of a team member that could use this type of help. please email Patty.
