Outreach Project
Outreach Project

The Employment and Training Department is starting a new Community Service Project/Outreach Project. We will be making Fresh Start boxes. Fresh Start boxes will be given to those in need of some positivity. When a participant is going through a rough spot and are making positive changes to work towards the life they want, they will be given one of these boxes. For this project to be a success we need help. 


We are asking for assistance with donations of the following items:


  • Shoe boxes

  • Kids books

  • Toiletries

  • Kids toys

  • Scarves

  • Jewelry

  • Arts and Crafts Items

  • Photo Albums/Picture Frames

  • Misc. Items that could brighten someones day


If interested in assisting with this please contact Danielle Wismer-Bowers.

Thank you!
