YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Two local non-profits joined forces on Thursday for a good cause.
Students from the Rich Center for Autism helped out university-based radio station WYSU with a mailing project. A group of eight students helped stuff envelopes for the radio station’s newsletter.
WYSU sends out 2,300 newsletters every quarter to its members. Teachers at the Rich Center said the collaboration was a win-win for everyone.
“Finding a community project like this is like hitting a homerun for our students in that they call participate in it and have a good time doing it,” said classroom supervisor Brendan Considine.
Representatives from WYSU said this was a great collaboration because it saves them money, and gives the students a job where they can learn something.
