VyStar is proud to take part in Shopability Saturday on March 6, a day that encourages our community to come together and support the more than 150 local businesses that provide employment opportunities for individuals with intellectual and developmental differences.
Interested in participating? Visit the Connectable website and scroll to the bottom of the page to view an interactive map that will help you locate participating businesses in your area. There are many retail, restaurant and small business options to choose from.
You can also watch videos to meet employees who are directly impacted by these initiatives, including Robbie Culliton, our VyStar Tower Host. Robbie was hired as part of our VyStar Visionary Employment Program (VVEP), which provides non-traditional employment opportunities for underserved individuals and embraces people from different backgrounds.
We are proud of all our VVEP employees and hope you will join us in celebrating Shopability Saturday.
Are you ready to take advantage of this great weather and contribute to a good cause? Join us for the Cowford Chophouse MOO-VE IT 5K on Saturday, March 6, in downtown Jacksonville to benefit the Jacksonville Arts & Music School.
Participants will start and end the race in front of Cowford Chophouse and run along the Northbank Riverwalk. The 5K will begin at 8 a.m. and a one-mile fun run will begin at 9 a.m. A post-race block party will also be held on Bay and Ocean streets and include music, drinks and food for race participants.
