Riverside: Team Pelican, getting the job done
We last shared in the spring, Riverside clients and staff working together on manufacturing tasks at Pelican in South Deerfield. Riverside clients work closely with Pelican employees to assemble, rework, label and tag the many products that Pelican manufactures. The Pelican First Shift Team Lead shared that when the team from Riverside arrive each day it is the highlight of her day. This work is providing a new skill set for our clients that can certainly be transferred to future job, in each of their career lives. Currently, there are eight individuals that are working full-time alongside Pelican staff to get the job done. Mike DuPerier, Director of Operations recently gave us a tour of what they call "Riverside North" at Pelican. Mike shared that the team from Riverside are so dependable, they come to work on time, they focus on the task and get the job done. We are grateful to Pelican for believing in our mission of empowering individuals to live rich and full lives.
