December 18, 2015 – DKI, North America’s largest disaster restoration contracting organization, announced today that one of its member companies, A&J Specialty Services, Inc. DKI of DeForest, Wis. continued its Restoring Kindness Movement by trading in their Christmas presents to spread some holiday cheer through Operation Christmas Child (OCC).OCC, sponsored by Samaritan’s Purse, collects shoeboxes filled with gifts and sends them to children, ages 2 to 12 around the world. Kent and Lynn Rawhouser, owners of A&J Specialty, along with a few other employees have been donating filled shoeboxes to OCC for several years.

In the past few years, A&J Specialty, as a company, has decided to forgo team gifts and use that money toward toys, art and writing supplies, toiletries, shoes and more to fill shoeboxes to donate to OCC. Last year, the team packed 8 boxes. This year, however, everyone donated even more money to donate a full 12 boxes.

“Lynn and I are happy to be part of such a great cause, and excited about the continuous generosity of our team making this a holiday tradition within our entire company,” said Kent Rawhouser.
