When I donate to MDI, the Macon Sheltered Workshop, Macon Diversified Industries, I know I am helping my community and by extension the persons working there.
They do a great job of helping this area with the needs of recycling many resource materials.
Their thrift store is by far the best around! Always great prices and always great service.
My donation here, is making a significant impact, for people know, including my family.
Do them a favor and donate something that doesn't cost you anything at all - word of mouth! Let people know about this awesome place!

This particular organization is by far the best of its type in the surrounding area. They offer valuable community services. They offer to the public a very convenient recycling outlet. They also operate a pretty impressive thrift store. Above all, this business provides steady, productive, and dignified employment for people with physical and developmental disabilities. The employees are fortunate enough to have caring and respectful staff looking out for them, and they seem like very happy and productive workers. This sheltered workshop is a credit to the community and others like it would do well to emulate their way.
