Veteran-Owned Small Businesses (VOSBs) are the newest eligible organizations in the Federal Donation Program, which is operated by the Missouri State Agency for Surplus Property (MOSASP).
In 2019, legislation was passed enabling VOSBs to access the program, and in 2021, many began obtaining property from state SASPs.
MOSASP has witnessed a steady increase in the number of VOSBs that want to join the program. Anderson Wood Products is one of several VOSBs who have been utilizing services of MOSASP, which allows them to pay a small service charge for items.
Anderson Wood Products, founded in 2011, first produced dimensional lumber that was sold to hickory handle manufacturers to produce tool handles.
