When Joe Wronka, Dan Greene, and Javier Herrera started their year as MercyWorks volunteers, they became fast friends. They happened to be the only three men in their MercyWorks class. Since their year of service, the three have remained close. And though Greene and Herrera no longer live in Chicago, they too have remained connected to Mercy Home.
Greene, who now lives in Buffalo, New York, started a company called Farm Team Apparel. The company designs apparel for "forgotten" sports teams (the "the best teams that never existed," as they put it), and for every shirt they sell, they donate a shirt to a youth sports team in need. The business allows Greene to provide uniforms to underfunded youth sports organizations, and to help give the athletes "character, vitality, and opportunity."
