When Oxford Press closed its operations in Cary, NC, DPR Construction worked with Scott Ladner, Raymond Carolina Handling Company, to find an organization in need of a generous donation. "We were overwhelmed to receive the call and find out many of our wish list items were being donated," says Mary Ann LeRay, Executive Director. There had been many conversations about how nice it would be to have board room chairs for our Board of Directors, who represent 12 churches in Jones County. The purchase always seems out of reach or just not necessary. From lightly loved chairs to furniture for our new teaching kitchen and classrooms, it was obvious God was orchestrating it all.

Raymond Carolina Handling made it possible for The Filling Station to have a forklift right after Hurricane Florence and continued to provide critical support to move materials on the campus.
DPR Construction is a community-minded company that leads with excellence in commercial construction. Thank you Mark Blackman from DPR Construction for working with The Filling Station to make the transfer possible. More info on DPR Construction.
