The Prize Patrol surprised Ricardo with the award and refreshments on March 13, 2019.

They continue, “Ricardo is always willing to help everyone in our building, no matter how big, small, messy or difficult the project is. Even on days he is working a long shift, he does not slow down and doesn’t lose his positive attitude.”
