Corporate Groups Immersed in Local Collaborative Work

Two prominent Elyria companies took time recently to tour collaborative partners focused on the City of Elyria.

Representatives from Invacare Corporation and the Ridge Tool Company boarded school busses from Horizon Education Centers and made stops at the Cascade Horizon, East Rec, Lorain South Branch Library and the Elyria Salvation Army to learn about the work of Ready Set Kindergarten, Southside Pride, and UCAN.

The informative tour allowed attendees to see first-hand how collaboration is bringing resources together and filling in gaps for people in need. The tour also provided an opportunity for a Q&A session.

Both companies kicked off their internal United Way campaigns this week with attendees from the tour acting as campaign champions by sharing their thoughts and experiences from the tour with their colleagues.
