Eight employees from EMC2’s manufacturing facilities in Franklin recently spent the day at HMEA’s Plainville Employment Program painting several rooms. EMC2 encourages its staff to organize volunteer activities and Jeff Hulme, Project Manager, and Malcolm Osborne, Senior Manager, were instrumental in rallying a team for the project. Plainville Employment Unit Supervisor, Heather Voisinet said of the project, “It is great that we could get the help with fixing up the program facility. I think that’s awesome.”
Sixty-one individuals with disabilities are supported through this employment program which helps them secure jobs that match their interests and skills. The volunteer team had the opportunity to see firsthand the important work that HMEA staff do each day and to meet the folks that are supported through the program. Jeff Hulme wrote to us after the project to say, “The team had a great experience yesterday and has a lot of respect for the HMEA Organization as well as everyone who works for them.”
Volunteer projects such as this, make a big difference in the lives of individuals with disabilities supported by HMEA. If you’re company is interested in spending a day volunteering at one of HMEA’s programs, please contact Tracy Andryc at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
