WOODLAND PARK, NJ - Mayor Keith Kazmark and the Borough Council at its June 7 meeting recognized borough resident Susan Martin for her 40 years of service working for the Foundation for the Handicapped in Wayne.
"Councilman (Joseph) Spinelli and I had the opportunity today to visit a gem that we have in Passaic County - the Foundation for the Handicapped in Wayne - to recognize the service of one of our residents," Kazmark said.
He presented Martin with a certificate of recognition in praise of her 40 years of service and commitment to the Foundation for the Handicapped.
The Foundation for the Handicapped was founded in 1966 by the Wayne Rotary to provide long-term employment for developmentally disabled adults. The concept was to develop an employment program for these individuals that is self sustaining and requires no government subsidy.
Since then the Foundation has served Northern New Jersey businesses from its 8,000 square foot facility in Wayne as a resource dedicated to hand-labor. Such services include packaging (kit assembly, shrink/blister, bag filling), specialized manufacturing (hand assembly, gluing, conveyor adaptive assembly), mail fulfillment (folding, packing, stapling, inserting, sealing, labeling) and promotional (labeling, point-of-purchase displays).
