Innovative Services NW gets funds for new van



VanMall — Innovative Services NW got a new van for Christmas.

The 2011 Sprinter cargo van was purchased with the help of a 50 percent matching grant awarded to Innovative Services from The HEDCO Foundation. The matching amount required was reached with the help of the Dornsife Family Foundation, board member Ron Torgensen and an anonymous donor.

The organization also received a manufacturer’s discount and a McCoy Freightliner’s dealer discount to help with the purchase of the vehicle. The van will be used for Innovative Services’ Custodial Services Program, which helps adults with disabilities and other barriers train for and maintain meaningful jobs.

The van is equipped to transport equipment for floor, window and carpet cleaning. “It’s a dream come true for our field operations staff. They really look forward to using the van for their daily operations,” said Sheryl Roach, director of adult services.
