Employees of OnProcess Technology, a relatively young company in Belfast (2015), already have found a way to make a difference. They recently collected and donated more than 1,700 items to the local Veterans of Foreign Wars post for use by veterans at Togus VA Medical Center in Augusta.

"OnProcess has an internal committee called the MAD Committee," explained Karen Wyman of OnProcess. "It stands for Making A Difference. We organize internal events with our employees as well as help in the community. Our company is still fairly new to Maine, so we are looking for areas to expand in the community to help where needed."

Wyman recently conducted a class of new hires, she said, and "one of the new employees approached me about the need for supplies for Togus. I immediately loved the idea, and brought it to the committee. They all agreed that we wanted to help.

"So I brought the challenge to the floor and made it a “Team” challenge," Wyman said. "Our teams love a challenge and they all jumped on board."

The new OnProcess employee, Barrett Ridley, is a member of the VFW Auxiliary. He contacted members of the Belfast post to transport the much-needed items to Togus.

VFW Post Commander Jim Roberts said, "Members of the VFW were quick to respond and receive this very generous gift and want to thank On Process for thinking of our friends and comrades."

Roberts said Wyman "has asked if there are other things her team can do for veterans in our area, so I am looking forward to working with them."

Anyone interested in helping veterans can call Roberts at the VFW post in Belfast at 338-2358.
