Help us lift up the lives of individuals with disabilities by EXPANDING our resources to create employment opportunities! Two thirds of people age 18-64 with disabilities do not have a job, despite their interest in working. They cite an inability to connect to appropriate jobs and supports and a lack of skills and training as barriers to attaining work. Qualified workers with disabilities, as a group, rate average or above average in quality and quantity of work, flexibility to demands, attendance, and safety. Last year alone, Beacon helped 1,700 people with a wide variety of employment options. In addition to improving the lives of people with disabilities you may be able to reduce, dollar-for-dollar, what you pay in Arizona state taxes. Help us LIFT UP more lives. Give Here!
- Beacon and Grandpa Gus
Simple, Easy, Ethical. This is the promotional tag for Grandpa Gus’s Mouse Repellent, which is produced, packaged and distributed by Beacon Group, for a company called Vic West Importers. Vic West makes and sells non-poisonous, non-toxic repellents, using all natural materials. Packaged in an oldfangled no-fuss, no-muss style, the rodent repellents have really taken off. Perhaps in part, due to their old-fashioned spokesperson, Grandpa Gus. He sells mice repellent pouches, and was environmentally friendly before it was cool. Learn more about how Beacon handles production of Grandpa Gus’s Mouse Repellent from start to finish!
