With the majority of leaders within Chenega MIOS being veterans themselves, MIOS takes great pride in how it, and its subsidiary companies, choose to give back to the selfless individuals that serve and have served our country. Recently, Chenega IT Enterprise Services (CITES) was given the opportunity to give back to High Timber Dreams, a non-profit organization based out of Elgin, Oregon, whose primary focus is “making dreams come true for Veterans, Active Duty, First Responders, & Youth, by providing hunting, fishing, and other outdoor activities.”
High Timber Dreams is a valued getaway location that hosts these highly deserving individuals for a stress-free weekend. Not only is it a place to escape to, but it is also a learning experience. Previous guests have explained that the owners value teaching conservation, protecting, and preserving biodiversity, the environment, and natural resources.
Money donated to High Timber Dreams helps with the establishment’s upkeep and running. CITES’ donation assisted in a recent hunting trip by paying for food for all guests, a new hunting blind, gas for the truck to scout and get all guests where they needed to be, and more. “The main reason I wanted to support High Timber Dreams is that I spent my teenage years hunting and fishing in Idaho with my Father. Through these trips, I learned invaluable skills in the mountains of Idaho (unknowingly preparing me for a career in the Army). This program serves Veterans and First Responders and allows them to utilize some of the skills they have learned in their years of service in a different setting to help them experience their dreams,” says CITES President, Jeffrey Sallee.
A team member for High Timber Dreams has gratefully said,
“We work very hard to make sure that we give our guests an experience of a lifetime, but we cannot do it alone. Words cannot begin to describe what your support for our mission means and the help that you have provided.”
We are so glad that CITES could help an organization like this that truly impacts the lives of those who have given so much for us.
