On August 1, we hosted an employee event at our headquarters in Upper Marlboro, Md. to welcome our newest affiliate, Linden Resources. The cookout style event was marked by hope, promise, and growing opportunities for the people we serve. The gathering was an opportunity for new colleagues to come together, discover similarities, and get a glimpse of the positive road ahead. Hot dogs and burgers covered the grills, the DJ played some familiar tunes, and a local radio personality, Taylor Thomas with WHUR-FM, joined us to cover the event. And what’s a cook out without some friendly competition? Employees participated in a scavenger hunt, played jenga, cornhole, checkers, and more. CLICK HERE to get a glimpse of the day’s events.
Similar to Melwood, Virginia-based Linden Resources is an AbilityOne organization committed to creating job opportunities for people with differing abilities, as well as providing resources for veterans coping with service-related injuries. They have an excellent line of services that we look forward to bringing into the Melwood fold, such as printing, fulfillment, shredding, document conversion, warehousing, and packaging.
Guided by our vision, Melwood has intended for years to expand its services in Virginia and to provide more job opportunities for people with differing abilities. This affiliation is one of the many ways in which we’re helping to create a world where people with differing abilities are fully included.
