On April 26, more than 40 volunteers from Supply Source One, a division of Schwarz, spent the day refurbishing the SHORE Joseph Koenig, Sr. Training Center in Morton Grove, Ill., as part of National Rebuilding Day. The event is organized annually by Rebuilding Together, a national nonprofit with a mission to preserve and rehabilitate the houses and communities of low-income homeowners. It mobilizes volunteers across the country to lend their skills and energy in assisting families with disabilities, the elderly and those under financial duress.
The Supply Source team and other volunteers contributed approximately 350 man hours to the center’s restoration, which included cleaning, painting and repairs. SHORE estimated that the work would have cost the agency close to $10,000.
SHORE’s mission is to improve quality of life for people with developmental disabilities through educational, residential, vocational and related programs. Its training center provides vocational training and employment to more than 200 developmentally disabled adults.
Supply Source One, with a dozen distribution centers nationwide, provides retail and maintenance supplies to the self-storage industry. It participates in National Rebuilding Day every year. For more information, visit www.supplysourceone.com.
