6/5/14. My son Ian & I just delivered 15 cases of Gillespie Farms Trail Mixes to Jeff Steinbeck of the AZ Burn Foundation to take up to Camp Courage near Prescott, AZ.

Its a great opportunity for them to hopefully forget about their problems for a while and have some fun. You can check out the Burn Foundation & their work at azburn.org.
