Oct. 14, 2020 – Texarkana, Texas – Nonprofit Texarkana Resources will be able to purchase the supplies necessary to continue to run its vocational training and life skills program thanks to a recent $3,500 donation from Sparklight Business.
The mission of Texarkana Resources is to provide education, training, and support to enable all persons with disabilities to reach their highest level of potential and self-sufficiency within the community.
“This donation means so much to our organization,” said Texarkana Resources Executive Director Jennifer Lewis. “Due to COVID-19 we were closed for several months without any source of revenue. Once we re-opened, we had to invest in changes to ensure the safety and well-being of our staff and trainees with disabilities we serve.”
The funds will allow the nonprofit organization to ensure it can continue to run its vocational training and life skills program by enabling it to purchase the necessary supplies to implement the training, Lewis said.
“Texarkana Resources has enhanced our community with vital programs supporting individuals of all abilities for more than 50 years,” said Sparklight’s Texarkana General Manager David Wall. “We are honored to be able to support its vocation and life skills programs, which lead to increased confidence and independence for their clients.”
