Greg Shaw, our managed print services specialist, received a letter from one of our Joplin contacts after Greg promptly checked in on them Monday to make sure they were ok and to offer assistance.

The letter reads as follows:

May 27, 2011


On behalf of our family and our firm, we want to take this opportunity to thank you for your calls and emails inquiring about our safety after Sunday’s castatrophic tornado destroyed a large portion of Joplin.  Your thoughts and prayers are coveted during this difficult time.  Although some members of our staff lost everything, we are blessed that they and their families are safe.

As we begin the recovery process, we ask that you continue to keep us in your prayers.  If you would like to donate to the recovery effort, you can do so at the following places.

  1. Joplin Family Y at:
  2. The Red Cross at:
