For this year's "Jeeps & Java" events, we will be doing things a little different. We've made so many great relationships with local area organizations over the past few seasons at these events that we've decided to continue to help each of these outstanding organizations in their humanitarian endeavors. If you've been out before, you already know that we here at Quadratec, like to support our community. With YOUR help, at each monthly event, attendees are encouraged to bring ANYTHING to donate that could help make a difference, no matter how seemingly big or small.
