Join us for an exciting event – the opening of our newest social enterprise, Woods Wear and the unveiling of the new Common Grounds Cafe coffee bar! Ribbon cutting will begin promptly at 10:00 a.m. at Woods Wear followed by coffee and sweet treat samples at Common Grounds Café!
Woods Wear employs Woods residents to design, print, and sell t-shirts, as well as hats, headbands, hoodies, sweatshirts and yoga pants.
With coffee cups in hand, our residents, staff, and families and friends of Woods will also toast Common Grounds Café, our open-to-the-public coffee and convenience shop, which employs Woods residents who greet customers, take orders, operate the register, prepare food, and maintain inventory and the dining room.
Woods’ operates four social enterprises – Woods Wear, Common Grounds Café, Yellow Daffodil Flower and Gift Shop and Beechtree Enterprises. A social enterprise is a business with a social mission. Our businesses provide individuals with opportunities to work in an integrated setting and gain skills, readying them for future employment opportunities in the community and increasing their independence.
Please join us on January 23rd to celebrate these two new initiatives!
