Summit is proud to have a team that stays involved in our community. Congratulations to Richard Barnes and his son on their impressive finish in the TOP 5 out of 80 BOATS! And for a great cause, too - this tournament helped raise money for the Rodeheaver Boys Ranch in Palatka, FL.
Rodeheaver Boys Ranch provides a wholesome home environment with social, educational, Spiritual and vocational training for up to 50 at-risk young men who, because of parental death, desertion, divorce and/or disability, have no home of their own. The Boys Ranch fulfills a lifelong dream of ranch founder Homer Rodeheaver. In 1950 Mr. Rodeheaver donated 790 acres of land, and established Rodeheaver Boys Ranch. The Ranch is located 12 miles south of Palatka, Florida along the shores of the scenic St Johns River. The Ranch Motto, “It Is Better To Build Boys Than to Mend Men,” is just as relevant in our society today as it was in 1950.

An Uplifting Volunteer Day for #TeamSummit
MARCH 29, 2019:
Summit volunteered at Rethreaded, a non-profit with a mission to renew hope, reignite dreams and release potential for survivors of human trafficking through business. We had a blast sorting t-shirts and enjoying some afternoon sun, all while supporting a good cause (and we couldn't have picked a nicer day to be outside). We spent some time getting to know Rethreaded, toured the warehouse, and then we sorted several bags (pounds!) of shirts that will become products made by and sold by Rethreaded.
“It was great being around an atmosphere created for empowering women, and I had fun spending quality time with my Summit family and the Rethreaded staff!” – Kerrigan
“What I appreciated most was learning about Rethreaded and how they are going out into our Jacksonville community and changing the lives of many people that have been subject to human trafficking. Being a part of something this special really puts things into perspective and makes you realize how much our involvement really means to the organization.” – Jonah
