Community at Work
When Bible study leader Mike McDaniel's group at Cisco decided they wanted to give back with a day of service together, he asked the group members what they were passionate about. One of the members, an Air Force veteran, told them about Fisher House. Fisher House provides housing to veterans and their families near Veterans Administration hospitals. While performing cleaning and maintenance tasks at the house, they met Brittany, a US veteran injured in a car wreck with a drunk driver. Brittany is able to come to St. Louis for innovative new spinal cord treatments because she is able to stay at the Fisher House while receiving her treatments. McDaniel says the experience of serving together has brought more energy to his group as well as a strong drive to continue helping others individually and as a group. This is why BBT exists, because when Christians apply their faith at work they become a community of leaders and their impact knows no bounds.
