Daniel Wayne Homes, Builders Without Borders support veteran organization

Dan Dodrill, president of Daniel Wayne Homes, Inc., helped construct a 7,000-square-foot covered riding arena and stables at the Miles Ranch for the Miles of Smiles Foundation through a local organization, Builders Without Borders, Inc. Previously, the Miles of Smiles Foundation operated without shelter and had only a small barn that had been damaged by Hurricane Irma. The Miles of Smiles Foundation was founded in 2007 by Keith and Gail Doxie in memory of their son, Miles Doxie, who was tragically killed in a car accident two weeks before he was to leave for training in the U.S. Air Force. The couple created Miles Ranch after his passing and now offer equine-assisted psychotherapy and learning programs for returning veterans at their 20-acre ranch to help them cope with post-traumatic stress disorder. They also provide support for veterans’ families, all at no cost. Builders Without Borders, Inc., a local organization Dodrill co-founded, helped arrange the build. The volunteer-run non-profit helps provide support and structures such as schools and youth centers for missionaries in Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Haiti, and beyond. They also assist with projects locally.
