On Wednesday, 10/18/16 WTI had the honor of being presented with Alternatives’ Community Beacon Award, an award for partners of Alternatives that have made a difference in the organization this past year. The award was presented at their 40th Birthday Celebration. The entire Alternatives Community and their families were invited to join the event and more than 700 people attended. In the course of the evening we celebrated the staff, the individuals served and serving in the community, and the partnerships within the broader community that come alongside individuals at Alternatives.
In 2016, we had the pleasure of planting with, training, and finding service and employment opportunities for individuals within the Alternatives community. Their positive attitudes and joyful dispositions made our jobs easy as we sought to teach them about the value of trees and how to care for them.
We look forward to continuing to live out Alternative's theme of living Together. This organization's mission to create and find places in the community where the individuals they serve can work and connect with others inspires us and is something we eagerly anticipate being part of for years to come. Thank you for the opportunity Alternatives, and thank you for this special honor!
