Did you know October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month? According to the United States Department of Labor, this is a national campaign to raise awareness about disability employment issues and to celebrate the contributions of America’s workers with disabilities. Step2 has teamed up with Weaver ProPak, a product services division of Weaver Industries. Weaver Industries is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for people with disabilities by providing vocational training and employment opportunities.
Weaver ProPak provides high-quality, professional assembly, packaging, kitting, labeling and fulfillment services. They recently opened their new warehouse and production facility in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. Step2 is working with Weaver ProPak to produce our Shootin’ Hoops Junior Basketball Set.
Weaver Industries operates several business divisions to provide meaningful work opportunities to adults with disabilities, so they can learn new job skills that will allow them to work independently for businesses in their community. We look forward to a long and lasting partnership with this amazing organization.
There are many words that describe Savanna Grace Stuntz-Grosso; a few that come to mind are dedicated, ambitious and generous. This incredible teen placed 3rd in the Ohio Junior Teen division at the National American Miss Pageant in Columbus, Ohio on July 21, 2014. Savanna is now qualified to participate in Nationals in Hollywood, California this Thanksgiving. In order to cover the expenses for this competition, she decided to fundraise.
Savanna is selling advertising space in the National Program Book for the pageant. Step2 is a proud supporter of this wonderful teen. We believe children can achieve their dreams and we want to help Savanna to reach hers.
The National American Miss Pageant means a lot to Savanna because it helped her develop the professional skills she will need as she conquers high school and enters college. Ever since Savanna was six years old, she has wanted to work with endangered cheetahs. She plans on volunteering at the Akron Zoo during her junior and senior year of high school and has many other plans to make her dreams a reality.
Good luck, Savanna! Your hard work will always help you to succeed.
