Kingston store earns ac­co­lades from state

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - OBITUARIES -

The Sav-On Party Cen­tral store at Kingston Plaza is among 47 busi­nesses across New York to be hon­ored by the state Ed­u­ca­tion Depart­ment for em­ploy­ing in­di­vid­u­als with dis­abil­i­ties.

The hon­ors co­in­cide with Na­tional Dis­abil­ity Em­ploy­ment Aware­ness Month, state Ed­u­ca­tion Com­mis­sioner Mary-Ellen Elia said Wed­nes­day.

“New York val­ues the di­verse tal­ents of all of its ci­ti­zens, and to­gether with these busi­nesses, we are fo­cus­ing on elim­i­nat­ing un­ac­cept­able em­ploy­ment gaps for peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties,” state Board of Re­gents Chan­cel­lor Betty Rosa said in a press re­lease.

“With sup­port and aware­ness, we can help in­di­vid­u­als be suc­cess­ful at work and cel­e­brate their con­tri­bu­tions and the busi­nesses that em­ploy them,” Rosa said.
