In early October the American Supply Association presented a check for $25,150 to Operation Rise & Conquer, an industry-wide initiative that helps wounded soldiers.

Gerber/Danze CEO Michael Wernerhas been the driving force behind the program, which has raised nearly $100,000 to sponsor 30 soldiers. The check represents commitments from many ASA members. ASA’s Young Executives Division has spearheaded the association’s fundraising efforts since its annual Spring Forum in May.
