Today at OCA the AVT (Adult Vocational Training)- West enthusiastic participants ambitiously helped staff prepare and set up for an influx of potential customers and donors at the Windermere Farmer’s Market.
The participants of both our AVT locations spend time each day making handcrafted items to sell in order to bring back money into our program. We make seasonal items and this fall we are featuring handcrafted pumpkin and fall themed candle holders.
We are visited frequently by return volunteers and customers who eagerly purchase to aid our cause. Our participants work vigorously to greet and work with those browsing the busy, beautiful streets of downtown Windermere, all while simultaneously working to develop and improve their social skills. Fridays are a splendid opportunity for our participants to involve themselves in their community! Often they get special visits; today it was our very own Coach Haas and our president Chuck Carter!
