Thank you 4Legz for being such an asset to our community! Owners John and Cynthia Murray of Chehalis have partnered with their local high school to provide work experience for disabled teens. The work experience program gives the kids experience not only with math and responsibility but real world work life and expectations. The kids come to the 4Legz facility once a week to help with weighing and packing treats into bags, marking the packages with “best by dates”, packing and taping shipping boxes, packing sample treats into bags and much more.
To afford the students additional hours of experience, they often pick up treats and bags for hundreds of sample bags that they put together at school. Cynthia spends time teaching the students with such patience!
Could John and Cynthia get the packaging done much faster without taking the time to mentor local kids? Of course! But that wouldn’t be as rewarding, and certainly not their style!
They are working on purchasing a new bagging machine with a wider base to be wheelchair accessible, with plans on employing local veterans as well. Just another reason to support our local companies, they support our community!
