During this holiday season of giving, I’m reminded of a quote from former 1960s- 1970s tennis champion, Arthur Ashe. He said, “From what we get, we can make a living; what we give, however, makes a life.”
What better time of year then to recognize and support the local organizations that selflessly give back to our communities through all seasons?
One such organization is Handi-Crafters, Inc. Founded in 1961, Handi-Crafters is one of Southeastern Pennsylvania’s largest providers of employment and support services programs for the disabled. Through partnerships with local employers, the organization provides job opportunities for the disabled in production, assembly, and packaging. By offering meaningful work, independent living, and retirement opportunities, Handi-Crafters empowers individuals with disabilities to reach their fullest potential. And those who have worked with Handi-Crafters know that the organization doesn’t just enhance the lives of individuals with disabilities, but also those who have the privilege of employing them.
