Nuru Lee came to PEP in 2013 with a goal to be a productive community member. He was not engaged in any social activities and wanted to do something industrious with his time. He began work at PEP in the work center with assembly contract work. He quickly progressed to learning and operating the shredding machine and assisting with bin pickups in the PEPShred truck. He says he enjoys being physical and interacting with the different office managers while picking up bins for shredding. Nuru is always happy to be at work and is an asset to any job.
PEP’s Employment Services can boast many success stories, like Nuru. But we couldn’t do it without the generosity of our donors.
We asked our donors why they gave to PEP. This is what they told us.
“To help keep the programs alive for the clients who need all the help possible. I’ll do everything in my power to help keep it going so that they can learn by doing the best they can.” ~Longtime Donor
“I found the Day Program to be great help for my daughter. Before she began going to PEP she was bored at home every day. I donate because I want PEP to be there for other families.” ~PEP Parent
“PEP has the most caring individuals as employees.” ~PEP Parent
“It’s local and the work and efforts for those deserving of an opportunity to flourish, be active socially, and in the community is invaluable. Everyone deserves a chance in life to be happy.” ~Community Member
“I wish I can donate millions to PEP. My son has gone to PEP for 24 years. I never worry about him when he is at PEP.” ~PEP Parent
