Puget Sound Training Center extends thanks to supporters
Local Teamsters Union 117 and its membership companies and state, local and federal officials recently gave their support to the Puget Sound Training Center, a nonprofit organization in Renton to receive funding through a statewide bidding process.
The funding will allow the center to continue its mission to provide training and employment services to low-income families and individuals with limited skills, education and English comprehension and who are unemployed or under-employed in the Puget Sound region.
Joseph Drake, president/CEO and founder of PSTC, presented an award of appreciation and thanks to John Scearcy, president and executive assistant of Teamsters Local Union 117 and his staff for their support in helping the center receive the funding.
"John Scearcy and his staff made it possible for us to meet with their Teamsters membership companies to hear (the center's) story and to gain their support," Drake said. "We could not have been able to get the funding without the help and support of Teamsters Local Union 117."
The funding was received from the State of Washington Department of Social and Health Services, the Community Services Division and the Office of Refugee and Immigrant Assistance.
