If you come to Matt Talbot on the 2nd Monday of each month before dinner you’re going to hear the radio rocking in the kitchen! That’s J-Tech Construction preparing the evening meal. Jason, the owner of J-Tech, and his crew first started volunteering 3 years ago when a friend, Adam Leudtke with Contemplate, suggested volunteering at MTKO. They enjoyed their experience so much they made it a monthly thing. J-Tech loves getting out of the office/jobsites and coming together to help folks in the community. They all agree it is a rewarding experience. Jason Olberding started J-Tech in 2004 with just a gutter machine and has since grown into three different locations - Lincoln, Grand Island and most recently, Omaha. J-Tech does a lot of fundraising/sponsorships, but Matt Talbot is their favorite. Two employees they wanted to highlight are Tim Freerking and Jerry Kouba. Tim shows up early every month when they volunteer to prep and cook all the food. He really enjoys coming up with the menus and cooking something different every time. The guests love the variety! Jerry stays late every time we volunteer and cleans all of the dishes. These two love helping out and the rest of the crew wouldn’t be able to do it every month without them.
Thank you J-Tech for helping us bring Bold HOPE!
