[Please click on the focus areas below for details on each specific effort.]

Today, SAME is continuing its efforts to support Wounded Warriors. Through efforts at the national, regional and local levels, SAME members are actively working to provide support and service to our wounded warriors and their families.

SAME also is continuing to accept donations to help fund Quality of Life Plus (QL+), a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that engineers adaptive technologies to benefit America’s wounded Veterans, first responders and other public servants. By harnessing the creative and engineering skills of students and faculty at Cal Poly, QL+ succeeds in developing innovative solutions that help our nation’s heroes live, work and play. The combination of engineering, mentoring future engineers, and supporting our wounded warriors made a partnership with QL+ an exceptional fit for SAME.
