Happy Holidays to you and yours!

Years ago, I had the pleasure of meeting an awesome human being who just happened to be one of the best sales people ever. He had a heart for PRIDE and directed business our way whenever he had the opportunity. He understood that the jobs he was supporting made a meaningful difference in the lives of individuals with disabilities. The world is small – and our impact often comes full circle. This fine man went on to have two children with disabilities. This month, one of them came to work at PRIDE.

For 48 years, PRIDE Industries, along with our customers, friends, and supporters, have accomplished great things together: creating jobs for people with disabilities. Today, PRIDE employs more than 4,900 individuals across America.  Your hard work, support and partnership make this possible.

Thank you for the role you play in helping people with disabilities succeed. This ‘power of purpose’ drives our shared vision for the future.

Best wishes for a wonderful holiday season and a New Year filled with opportunity for all.

  2. This is so awesome and hits close to home for me. Little did I know after working for PRIDE for 10 years and absolutely loving our Mission, that I would have a child with Autism. I believe God was preparing me for this while I was at PRIDE all those years! And now I’m back working at PRIDE, able to continue furthering this incredible mission, with the hope that my impact will come full circle some day, when my son has a place to work here at PRIDE!! Keep on Rockin’ Fellow PRIDE Employees and Happy Holidays!
