  • Connie Leonard, Acting Director, Provider Compliance Group, Center for Program Integrity (CPI), Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)
  • Kevin Young, Senior Technical Advisor , Provider Compliance Group, CPI, CMS

Enriching Lives: Ted Garding

Thursday, June 7, 2018 @ 09:06 AM  posted by jbuytaert

Ted Garding was inspired by one of the videos we watched in Book Club recently. Ted has always wanted to give back to neighborhoods and the youth that he sees outside standing around parks without equipment. Last week he reached out to Spalding with his idea titled “How a Ball Can Transform a Neighborhood.” Quite simply put, Ted asked Spalding if they would like to donate sporting goods that he could pass along to kids in need. He finished his proposal with “Wouldn’t you like that ball to say Spalding?”
Ted’s actions may not have enriched any lives yet, but this just goes to show what kind of person Ted Garding is. He is always willing to give and put others in front of himself. He is constantly living our mission, values and the culture that Handi Medical is proud of.

Enriching Lives: Sheldon Anderson

I had just finished helping a pregnant customer in our showroom, and she asked me if anyone would have a tire jack because as she pulled into our lot she got a flat tire. I went to find someone, and found Sheldon Anderson. Sheldon found a tire jack and went outside to help this customer out. Even though she said she could change the tire, Sheldon changed it for her.

Sheldon was quick to help a person in need. He went beyond her request and helped her 100 percent.
