UNIVERSAL MIND AT SPRING TENURE EVENT
Spirits were up and everyone was dancing to the excellent music by Universal Mind at the annual spring tenure event, held at Mackenna on May 19. The break was well earned after many successful job placements and over 800,000 bottles and cans sorted at Empties for Empower, which celebrated it’s one year anniversary in April. Here’s to another year of accomplishment and excellence by this wonderful division!
ANGELA GANTT PROFILED IN VIDEO
Kim Kiely nominated Angela Gantt for excellence in the Living the Values employee nomination program for ensuring the renewal of the Family Services Program grant. This required adding personal outcome measure interviews and tracking measures to ensure the program is helping participants, who are individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities, improve their social and advocacy skills.
OUTLET MALL SIGNS ON AS EMPTIES CUSTOMER
When the Outlet Mall learned about Empties for Empower, they saw an opportunity to promote recycling while also being a good neighbor to a worthy cause. Recycling containers labelled Empties for Empower were put in the food court and in 11 store break rooms of the Outlet Mall, one of the area’s biggest destinations. All returns from bottles and cans that are collected will be donated to Empower. So far, 15 bags have been delivered. Many thanks to John at the Outlet Mall for his commitment and support.
