Small Convenience Store Provides Valuable Training
Creation of the “Snack Attack” program and shop was funded by generous grants from the East Hill Foundation and the Community Services Support Foundation. Michelle Schmidt and Ami Greatbatch from the East Hill Foundation attended the opening and were one of the first official customers at the shop.
Community Services Support Foundation Board of Directors Members, Stephen E. Mayo, Christyn Newlin and Karen A. Silver joined Community Services CEO Mark R. Foley for a cup of coffee from the shop along with many other customers.
At the “Snack Attack” convenience store, waiting room patrons and Community Services employees can get warm lunch, a light snack, sweet treats or a “pick-me-up” coffee or soda. Business has been brisk as the shop trained and readied for the Grand Opening in the last few weeks.
The Agency intends to expand the program to additional locations in the future.
