Novelis Chooses Oswego Industries to Receive $1,250 Donation

We’re excited to announce that Novelis has chosen Oswego Industries as a recipient of their 12 Days of Giving Program. They’ve donated $1,250 to our agency, which we will use to continue our Workshop Transformation Plan.

According to Igor Kasovski, director of operations at Oswego Industries, “The timing of the donation couldn’t have been better. As we move forward in 2020, we will be improving our capabilities in delivering key products and services to our current and new customers. This will create more work opportunities for people with disabilities. Novelis’ donation provides a great start for us in acquiring the needed funding to meet our goals.”

Thank you Novelis!
