Over the past four months we were excited to open three new Group Supported Employment locations. Through them we are currently offering employment opportunities in settings outside of ASPIRO for 12 people each day. This is a great way for people to try different work experiences with the full time onsite support of ASPIRO staff.
One group of our employees was very proud to return from their work day feeling they were a part of history. They were given the remarkable opportunity to assemble and package the 59th Presidential Commemorative Inaugural Coin. I’m often struck by the amazing things that companies in Brown County quietly produce and this is certainly one of them. Metalcraft Mint not only struck this beautiful coin for the inauguration, they also designed and produced inaugural medals for President Trump, President Barack Obama, and President George W. Bush. We are very proud to be partners with such a remarkable organization.
Some of you may remember that ASPIRO also made scarves for the inauguration of President Obama. We are very proud of our tradition of supporting this country in exciting ways like these but also in less exciting but very impactful ways such as manufacturing coveralls for the United States military.
