Supporting Self Help Workplace
Self Help Workplace provides meaningful work to around 51 people with a disability in Youngtown.
The team uses rag cutting machines to make commercial cleaning cloths from recycled material and clothing for local businesses. And they’re a hit!
The cleaning cloths have been so popular, the team has been struggling to keep up with only two machines, but through our Community Fund, has just bought and installed a brand new rag cutter.
The team is delighted with the workshop’s latest addition.
“Our employees absolutely love to work and the purchase of a new rag cutter will allow us to build a stronger enterprise,” said Self Help Workplace General Manager Donna Bain.
“This will increase our ability to offer employment opportunities to people with a disability.”
We’re so proud to help an organisation that:
• Offers fun, inclusive work
• Helps local businesses
• Reduces material in landfill and is good for the environment
If you’re part of a non-profit group or know of one doing great things in your local community, we’d love to hear from you.
