Soccer Balls and Safety Glasses

During a conversation with USACE Senior Project Engineer John Offen, Mass Vice Operating Manager Mo Ghamdi learned that USACE construction personnel in Iraq were gathering supplies to support the Iraqi reconstruction effort.

"He said they had local workers without proper safety equipment and kids with no toys or anything," explains Mo. In response to the need, Mass Service & Supply, LLC donated soccer balls and safety glasses to the Corps of Engineers, who distributed them to those in need in Iraq.

John Offen wrote "The kids' hands were shaking when I gave them the balls. I wish everyone who sent the stuff could experience one second of the joy I felt... You would think that each of them has just won a million dollars. They are very grateful and so am I to all who have given."
