The Meadows annual Walk-A-Thon, held on Saturday, October 12th, was a tremendous success, and we want to thank everyone who participated.
But there is even more good news!
Fortunately, it’s not too late for you to donate to our fundraiser. You still have time to make a contribution that will help our organization change lives.
The Meadows Center for Opportunity offers employment and vocational training for men and women with developmental disabilities and other intellectual and physical challenges. As a nonprofit, we depend on this fundraiser to help offset operational costs, to make improvements to our facility, and to upgrade our equipment.
Your support is crucial in our efforts to provide work for people who are too often overlooked in the job market. They are frequently denied the chance to earn a paycheck, and, most importantly, they are not given the opportunity to reach their potential.
Thankfully, our employees realize that we appreciate and value them not for what they can do but for who they are as people. These individuals are committed, dedicated and eager to learn. Their work ethic is admirable. They take pride in their jobs, and it shows in the results our business achieves.
Thousands of customers around the state know they can depend on the Meadows to deliver prompt professional service. They trust our organization for the secure data destruction of their sensitive material. Their long-term loyalty reflects the quality of work that we consistently provide.
That is why this time of year is so important to us. We need your financial assistance so our employees can continue to experience the dignity of work.
Each time a person with a developmental disability is successfully employed, it’s an achievement that deserves to be acknowledged.
That is particularly true of the adults in our organization. Because many of them have serious on-going health issues, our work environment is structured in a way that allows us to continuously monitor their activities and to respond immediately should any problems occur.
So, even if individuals have frequent seizures, require assistive devices for mobility, have limited vision, or partial paralysis - our staff has the proper training to make sure that each person’s needs are met and that they can safely and comfortably do their jobs.
But no matter what their personal challenges happen to be, the positive attitudes of our employees clearly reveal their inner strength and character. Each day they demonstrate courage, perseverance, and a sense of responsibility as they perform a variety of vocational tasks to the best of their ability.
We could not be prouder of the men and women who work with us, and we believe their employment is a cause worth supporting.
If you agree, please consider making a financial contribution to the Meadows so that we can continue our mission of providing meaningful work in a safe and supportive setting for individuals who deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.
