About The Above & Beyond Award 

"We got community members to donate new bikes to homeless children in our area for their Christmas present. We don't do it for the recognition, but it was an honor to receive the Above and Beyond Award and we're so thankful we can help our community this way! "

Tony Dias, Marine Corps (RET)
