I am a donor to this non profit initiative because I believe it is a great idea and I’m very confident with Marcelle’s skill set and passion along with Robert’s skill and drive it will succeed. I know the board is also extremely skilled and passionate as well. Please consider helping get this important initiative running at full steam. The trades and the next generation are going to need this kind of initiative.

I am impressed with the level of empathy and concern demonstrated for those less fortunate in life. In these perilous times, it is encumbered upon all of us to roll up our collective sleeves and pitch in wherever we can. We can all use some help and guidance from time to time. Lastly, a vision executed with thoughtfulness, compassion, and sincerity cannot and will not fail.

I love everything that this company stands for! I have been lucky to be apart of Workwright's journey and to see up close the heart and passion behind it. Particularly during these uncertain times, it is lovely to see people coming together to help others in a practical way. Workwright VT endeavours to help people indiscriminately who may have fallen on hard times or are wanting to turn their lives around or are just wanting to explore different fields and lines of work. They are for anybody and everybody and are especially passionate about helping people who are really struggling and may have hit their rock bottom. I am so excited to see Workwright grow and help others to grow! I think the structure of this nonprofit is unique and smart, not only can people help by donating money they can help by donating their time and skils through mentoring and training so that participants can actually apply what they have learnt to their day to day and have more doors open for them. Now I think probably more than ever is the perfect time for a company like Workwright Vermont - a beacon of light during a time of great difficulty for individuals, for families, and for our communities. Keep up the great work!
