With the current budget impasse, we are operating on minimal dollars that were raised by donations and one small fee-for-service project. Until the Governor signs a budget we will not receive any funding from our operations grant (funder). We are asking for monetary donations from Corporations, Businesses, and other Community groups to keep our staff in place so consumers can continue to be served.

York Spherion Gives Back to CIL

Local staffing company embraces the holiday spirit through community giving

York, Penn. — November 24, 2014 —  The York office of Spherion Staffing Services, a locally-owned recruiting, staffing and workforce solutions provider with nine Pennsylvania offices, is donating $1,000 to the ­­­­­­Center for Independent Living as part of the company’s national Community Giveback program. In total, local charities in Pennsylvania will receive $9,000 from the Ruggery Group.

“We are so excited to contribute to the Center for Independent Living,” said owner, Don Ruggery. “It is a great way to further our commitment to our local community and partner with our neighbors to make York a better place to live and work. The more often we are involved with organizations like this, the better we understand the needs of our community. This in turn helps us more effectively serve the individuals who live here. Our priority is putting the people of York to work and contributing to the health of local community organizations and businesses.”

On November 25 at 1:00pm, Spherion will be presenting a check to ­the Center for Independent Living in the amount of $1,000.00 at the local Center for Independent Living, located at 127 West Market Street, Suite 100, York, PA.

Each Spherion owner handpicked one or more organizations to “give back” to in advance of the holiday season. Overall, through this program, Spherion has donated $124,000 nationally to local organizations in the communities where it operates. Spherion launched the national Community Give Back program to thank their communities and to help advance the important work of local charitable organizations.
