Hattie Larlham in Mantua, Ohio, creates opportunities for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Medical, residential, recreational and work training services are provided to 1,700 Northeast and Central Ohio people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Prompted by an employee suggestion, Automation Plastics partnered with another local manufacturer to brighten the lives of those who reside at Hattie Larlham. The response from each facility’s employees was overwhelming. Not only were individual gifts for each resident purchased but every day necessities were collected: shampoos, soaps, Q-tips, blankets, etc. One employee even baked cookies for the staff to enjoy. The spirit of compassion for these residents by far exceeded anything that we had experienced here before and brought employees closer together.
