SSCOPE issues timely advisory for Fall Yard Clean Up Services. Clean Up-Clean Out is the theme for October for SSCOPE!
SSCOPE Inc. a Winnipeg non profit supporting mental health through employment and job training, has issued an urgent plea to the Winnipeg community to support the organization’s job creation by booking the SSCOPE employee-member crews and supervisor to provide a full Fall Yard Cleanup service from now until the snow flies.
Executive Director, Bob Rempel said, “we have a strong growing demand for more work from our members as our programs have become better recognized in the community for the real benefits they can provide an individual wishing to resume more normal functioning.” “Our move to new quarters at 1466 Arlington St. and the opening of Treasures by SSCOPE retail thrift store, plus the start of other employment programs has obviously also helped,” he added.
Clean Up-Clean Out is the theme word for October. SSCOPE is offering a timely opportunity to its Yard Cleanup customers. For an additional $50 or more contribution to SSCOPE, the organization will help you remove up to 10 items up to medium size and weight from your garage, basement or house, such as furniture,and take them to the landfill, or if appropriate, recycle them at our Treasures by SSCOPE thrift store.
SSCOPE also picks up bagged yard leaves as part of its fund raising at a cost of $2.00 per bag, with a $20.00 minimum, and brings them to the City of Winnipeg Leaf It With Us drop off sites around Winnipeg.
SSCOPE provides a full Property service for single family properties, condos, apartments, small business, non profits and others. New equipment, with the support of the Winnipeg Foundation and the Thomas Sill Foundation, will allow SSCOPE to double its customer base this fall. Snow shoveling services start after November 1 and runs until March 31.
Rempel said all forms of support are most welcome as the non profit strives to create more employment for those with mental health and related disabilities in ways that benefit the community and our members. We continue to welcome community partners for our new SSCOPE Food Services and Automotive programs, our Retail expansion, as well as our Entertainment stage within the Store.
SSCOPE currently assists 120 employee members per year, with casual and part time employment, in its various business enterprises with a cause. Approximately $100,000 is currently paid out annually in wages and benefits to those with a mental health disability or issue working for SSCOPE.
