FREDERICTON, NB – The New Brunswick Association for Community Living (NBACL) has announced a new partnership with Fredericton-based Jeff Alpaugh Custom. For every #VACCINATED mask sold by Jeff Alpaugh Custom, the company will donate one dollar to NBACL.
“I am so excited for this partnership with NBACL because it speaks to my belief in giving a ‘hand up’ to New Brunswickers who need some extra help,” said Jeff Alpaugh, the company’s owner and founder. “Supporting the people living in our community has always been a core value of my business and I’m extremely enthusiastic to be working with a like-minded organization.”
Founded in 1957 by a group of determined parents with a vision of a better life for their children, NBACL has grown into a versatile non-profit organization with operations throughout the province, supporting New Brunswickers of all ages with an intellectual or developmental disability to live a meaningful, inclusive life in the community.
Through their programs, NBACL supports people to access employment, a home of their own, community connections, additional supports and services, and more. The association also works to make changes at the policy level, paving the way for a more inclusive community for current and future generations. Their work is guided by the principle that all people can contribute and bring value to their communities.
“This partnership with Jeff Alpaugh Custom is a game-changer for us,” said Roxanne Tarjan, President of NBACL. “Having the financial and philosophical support of someone like Jeff will go a long way in helping NBACL with our mission of building inclusive communities. Not only will his donation help to fund some of our core programs, but having someone of Jeff’s prominence in the community will help encourage more people to support our values.”
The #VACCINATED mask project is the first step in the partnership between Jeff Alpaugh Custom and NBACL, with more initiatives to come.
