September 30, 2015
AltaGas Blythe Energy Center presented Sheltering Wings Corporation Lawn Crew, which was in need of new lawn equipment, with a lawnmower and weed eater. Sheltering Wings Corporation is a non-profit agency in Blythe, California providing support to adults with developmental disabilities in the Palo Verde Valley. The supported employment program employs adults with developmental disabilities in the areas of thrift store item preparation, lawn service, car washing and laundry.
“It was a real honor and pleasure to be a part of this donation. Sheltering Wings provides a wonderful service to our community and particularly the folks they support. I am very impressed with Sheltering Wings’ commitment to helping people in need...simply awesome. They are more than worthy of the equipment AltaGas Blythe Energy donated and there is no doubt in my mind that it will be put to good use, for the landscaping crew showed a great deal of gratitude and enthusiasm. What a memorable experience!” stated Michael Darmody, Sr. Environmental Specialist at Blythe Energy Center.
