RESOURCE receives contribution from Quazar Capital Corporation
RESOURCE is one of four nonprofit organizations recently chosen to receive a $2,500.00 donation from the Quazar Capital Corporation Charity Contest.
Here is what the awarding organization said about RESOURCE and about Paul Way, who nominated RESOURCE for the award:
RESOURCE enables people to achieve greater personal, social, and economic success. They provide employment, training, mental health, and chemical health services. Each year, RESOURCE helps more than 20,000 program participants (plus their children) in Minnesota to achieve their dreams by obtaining needed skills and support to obtain employment and advance their careers.
Paul Way at Associated Bank nominated RESOURCE for this award. Paul has been a member of the RESOURCE’s Board of Directors for more than three years and also serves as Treasurer and Finance Committee Chair. What drew Paul to RESOURCE is its mission of helping those in need to achieve their dreams by acquiring skills necessary to find and hold jobs, which, in turn, helps them care for their families. Paul is particularly interested in organizations such as RESOURCE which ultimately help children and build stronger families.
