Ribbon Cutting and Open House

Evanston businesses rallied around jjslist.com and No Boundaries to cut the ribbon at our new location at 824 Dempster Street!  Business owners and managers, large and small, helped celebrate a new step forward in the the integration of people with disabilities in the community and the workplace.   Thank you to Evanston Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl, the Evanston Chamber of Commerce and Search, Inc. for making this a successful event.

“We would love to come and talk with the No Boundaries participants about the food retail industry ,” said Karen Levy, Marketing Specialist at Whole Foods Market, adding that this kind of presence in the business community opens up new opportunities to connect around employment at Whole Foods.”

Business owners and managers took a survey during the open house; as a result we are having our first Lunch and Learn event!

Topic: Talk to your customers with disabilities the right way.

When: Wednesday, January 29, 2014 from noon -12:45pm
