MORRISTOWN, N.J., MAY 17, 2021 – CoWorx Staffing Services CEO Tim Hartnett donated $10,000 to Fedcap Inc. during a meeting at their offices in Biddeford, Maine last week. The contribution represents CoWorx Staffing’s continued investment in helping to secure employment for the state’s growing “New Mainer” community.
“Our partnership with Fedcap has profoundly improved the lives of individuals in need of work,” said Tim Hartnett, CEO of CoWorx Staffing Services. “We proudly support their mission.”
As Maine has become increasingly diverse with a growing immigrant population, New Mainers need help in developing skills and finding employment. Fedcap helps to provide vital resources and training to help marginalized communities begin careers or advance in the workplace. Through community partnerships with CoWorx Staffing Services and others, the organization is able to offer enhanced access to education and training and helps participants begin or advance their careers while also helping employers meet workforce needs.
“Like CoWorx, we believe in the value of creating relationships and experiences so people are valued and fulfilled,” said Serena M. Powell, Executive Director of Fedcap Inc. “It’s through relationships like ours that we’re able to create sustainable differences for individuals in Maine. Thank you, Tim Hartnett and CoWorx for the generous donation and your continued partnership with Fedcap.”
Fedcap and CoWorx have been instrumental in employing over 1,000 New Mainers since August, 2020. Many of the positions were entry level with on-the-job training.
Since opening its doors in January 2017, Fedcap has partnered with over 1,700 nonprofits throughout Maine, assisted over 5,000 Mainers with educational opportunities, and verified over 10,000 job placements.
