LCEC provides Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida with Environmental Funding Award

October 8, 2019 – LCEC announced that it will provide the Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida with a $2,000 environmental funding award to help support the creation of Pathways to Environmental Stewardship, an initiative of the Pathways to Opportunity program. This program is directed to adults with physical and intellectual disabilities. The initiative will conduct activities and classes throughout 2020. Each class and activity aim towards empowering the students to become more aware of how their choices affect the environment around them. Participants will become exposed to various projects where they will repurpose recycled and found items.
