Field Trip to PROJECT INC.
Date – Time
Wednesday, April 17, 2019
– 9:30 AM
St. Louis, 63139
WHAT: This is a field trip to visit an extended employment sheltered workshop.
The focus is on packaging and assembling, although there are many aspects and various services offered. It began in 1966 when a group of St. Louis parents of adult children with developmental disabilities got together and applied for a grant with the purpose and goal of hopefully preparing their children for the mainstream workforce. So, when those employed at Project, Inc. are deemed ready they are encouraged and assisted in finding a job outside of the sheltered workshop environment. Some have gone to other jobs, while others are welcome to stay at Project, Inc. It is all done according to individual ability. Visit their website if you would like more details:
WHEN: Wednesday, April 17th at 9:30 a.m. and should plan for about one hour or so.
WHERE: 2828 Brannon Avenue
St. Louis Mo. 63139
Parking lot directly across the street.
WHO: Limit of 25 total (includes adults and children)
COST: There is no charge; however, Mary Murphy, who set this trip up, is asking each family to contribute a donation so on the day of our tour we can give that to them. PLEASE BRING A CASH DONATION OF ANY KIND!!!!! This is a wonderful opportunity to be able to see firsthand how satisfying it is for those who work at Project, Inc. and how glad and thankful they (and their families) are to be recognized as serving and being productive. Also, it is a good time to become acquainted with the facility and all that they accomplish. In addition, this will be a great tool to teach your children to respect and value those who are different from them.
