SESDAC preparing for benefit auction SESDAC, Inc. is busy preparing for its 12th Annual Benefit Auction on March 29 at the Buffalo Run Winery. SESDAC, Inc. supports people with disabilities in the Vermillion area.
"Community First (National Bank) is one of a number of businesses that employ people with disabilities in Vermillion," said Rennae O'Connor of SESDAC, Inc. She was talking about how the Vermillion business community supports people who are clients of SESDAC. "The bank also does a lot to assist people with disabilities to participate in their own personal banking," O'Connor said.
Roxi Miller, president of Community First, described how one SESDAC, Inc. client has become a regular employee of the bank.
"Amanda Dickenson makes a meaningful contribution to our work day," Miller said. "She is both accurate and conscientious about her daily responsibilities in sales support. Her job is to film all checks and deposits that are presented to the bank each day. She is also responsible for metering and sending the mail. She is a joy to have as part of the CFB family."
On any working day SESDAC, Inc. staff members might provide a wake-up call, help prepare a nutritious breakfast, make final adjustments on clothing and ensure people arrive for work on time. This partnership among clients, employers and staff is what makes SESDAC work well for so many people.
SESDAC's purpose is to assist people with disabilities to live, work and socialize in their community. The Vermillion community has been a willing partner in this endeavor for 30 years.
On March 29 the community will have another opportunity to show its support for SESDAC, Inc. The Annual Benefit Auction, SESDAC's only fund raiser, will be held at the Buffalo Run Winery.
