The ECHO team has partnered up with Campus Survival Kits to help parents by creating kits for school supplies! We have a few ECHO participants helping package these convenient kits. Our participants are SO grateful for the employment opportunity and love to lend a helping hand.

Parents can save time on shopping for separate items by ordering directly from Campus Survival Kits. Thank you Campus Survival Kits for allowing us to be involved in your mission!!

Our participant, Naseara, is working on preparing cardboard boxes for new Stryker products as part of our Group Supported Employment Program!

To complete the task, she’s opening up a flattened piece of cardboard, folds over the flaps on one end and adheres a sticky dot to hold the fold in place. This task is a great part of the full assembly line with other Stryker employees working to fulfill product orders for their clients!
