As the son of two veterans, Jace Liszka finds it imperative to help those who served our country. When the opportunity arose to help the Central Oregon Veterans Ranch, he felt honored to use his volunteer time off (VTO)—given to each Morrison-Maierle employee-owner—to an organization that helps veterans.

“It feels really good to make an impact on my community,” says Liszka, who is an engineering designer in Morrison-Maierle’s Bend office. “I am excited not only that my volunteering helped the greater Bend area, but it will also benefit all veterans who visit the ranch, whether for food or just to connect and care for the farm animals.”
