Words of appreciation from Joe . . .

“Dear Mr. Gullickson, I am writing this letter to thank you for everything you and the Maverick Foundation have done for me over the past four years. The opportunities given to me were once in a lifetime. The challenges forced me to push myself and I realized that if you put in the effort and strive for something you can accomplish anything. I gained a sense of community through my volunteer work and actually enjoyed myself. Your kindness, words of encouragement, support, and generosity will be with me the rest of my life.”
