I've been a proud Supporter and Business Partner of Seagull for over 2 years.

As a Supporter (financial & inkind), I firmly believe in Seagull's programs and the benefits that they provide to members of community with developmental disabilities - vocation, life skills, employment and residence.

As a Small Business, Seagull is a great local resource that many of my clients leverage for Custom Fulfillment & Shipping needs. Doing business with Seagull is a true Win-Win-Win for Busineses-Seagaull-Community!

I encourage you to visit & support Seagull and explore how they may serve your business needs.

I have been donating to Seagull for the past 10 years. I make monetary contributions when I can, I donate to their thrift store several times a year. It is nice to be able to go into the stores and see that my donations are being put to good use. Everyone that works there seems to be cheery and in good spirits. I have taken a tour of their facilities on 2 different occasions now and I was surprised by the number of activities that they have, they had an "art class" and "dancing" class the day that I was there. They also had a number of people working on sending out mail and putting together some packages. Each time I went there, people came up to me, introduced themselves, gave me a hug or shook my hand. I really felt like part of the family. I like being able to see the impact of my donations at Seagull.
