Growing up David's parents took in over 50 medically fragile foster children. His parents, his brothers and sister were all part of providing a safe and nurturing environment for these children to thrive. This instilled in him a compassion for others, and a passion to step up where and when the need is the greatest.
David's parents worked very hard to get him and siblings the things we needed. Hand-me-downs were a regular part of growing-up. His Mother taught him compassion for those less fortunate, his Dad taught him his work ethic. David got his first job at 15 washing delivery truck and has been working ever since.
