Job Fair successful due to businesses

Each October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month and this year’s theme was “The Right Talent, Right Now.” Ka Lima O Maui, the largest employer of persons with disabilities in Maui County, celebrates this important achievement by sponsoring a Job Fair each October. This was the eighth annual, was held at a new venue (Binhi At Ani Filipino Cultural Center) and was a great success.

Mahalo nui loa to all of the businesses who took the time to come out to meet all of the participants, recruit for their staff, and shared what they had to offer with all of those who attended. Mahalo also to the high schools for participating as well as all of the other service providers who brought their consumers. Special thanks go to MEO for help with transportation and to the IBS School of Cosmetology, TJ Maxx and Ainsley Nilsen of the Beauty Bar for offering door prize gifts.

Ka Lima of Maui is proud of all the vocational gains by people with disabilities in Maui County over the last decade and look forward to partnering again with Maui’s employers and businesses next October during National Disability Employment Awareness Month at the ninth annual Ka Lima O Maui Job Fair.
