May is the time our teams step out of the office and give back to the community in a different way: by volunteering for our Make-A-Difference-Day opportunities.  Our volunteer services range anywhere from working at refugee center to pulling weeds at a local farm.  As we get more reports of what each location did for it annual M.A.D.D., we’ll post them here and on Facebook.  First up are our Spokane and Benton Franklin locations:

Benton Franklin

Our WSCB team had originally planned to paint outdoors at the South Eastern Washington Service Center of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, though nature foiled those plans with a rainy forecast.  Instead, they shifted gears and spent the day vacuuming and shampooing the entire office space, organizing old files, pulling weeds, and generally tidying up the place.  With the money Career Path Services donated to the center, the director decided they’ll be able to hire painters to come in on days where the weather is more cooperative.

Thanks to the following Career Path Services’ team members who made this day possible: Christine Sauceda, Brooke Zielinski, Leticia Torres, Carya Bair, Katie Engel, Ruben Vigil, Patty Guerrero, and Rick Valdez.















Our Spokane team spent their morning at the Refugee Connections aiding them in their Patient Passport project and making invitations for their World Refugee Day.  Everyone at Refugee Connections was grateful for the assistance and monetary donation.  Dan Dwyer and James Hughes were able to work with the director to have Career Path Services’ program participants build work experience by helping out with other projects their offices.

Thanks to the team members who spent their mornings volunteering: Tina Hermann, Sarah Featherly, Paul VanDriel, Brenda Cerenzia, Dan Dwyer, Marissa Turner, James Hughes, and Esther Sasse.
