Jim Larsen, CEO of Upper Peninsula Power Company (UPPCO)
Since joining the UPPCO Team over 4 years ago, I became familiar with UPAWS and all the magnificent work that they do. My wife and I have supported UPAWS and have attended several of their fundraising events. We were even fortunate to be able to participate in the name a beer after your dog event, sponsored by Cognition Brewery. Over the years, we have taken in many rescue dogs ourselves and are very aware of some of the challenges these animals have faced prior to being rescued. It is thanks to the wonderful people at UPAWS that helps to save some of the more unfortunate animals and finding their forever home. Out of the many organizations I have supported over the years, it is hard to find one with more compassion, combined with being well run and organized to make a meaningful difference.
