CUMAC’s Pathways to Work Provides Skills Training with Enriching Work
SADDLE BROOK, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–NEC
Financial Services, LLC today announced it has joined forces with
CUMAC of Paterson, New Jersey, to provide warehousing and inventory
management services while offering skills training and steady work in a
professional environment to participants of their Pathways to Work
“Focused on the fight to end hunger in Passaic County, CUMAC is an
amazing organization that is enriching the lives of tens of thousands of
New Jersey residents in need every year,” said Herschel Salan, President
of NEC Financial Services. “When our previous contract for warehouse
services and inventory management came up, NEC jumped at the chance to
provide meaningful work opportunities to CUMAC’s Pathways to Work
Palma Rizzi, Asset Manager for NEC Financial Services who oversaw the
partner integration with CUMAC stated, “Our transition to CUMAC’s team
and overall experience with participants to date has been nothing short
of extraordinarily smooth and professional. We made the right move.”
For more than 30 years, CUMAC has provided food, disaster relief,
housing, job training and care to over 65,000 individuals annually –
including children, the sick, elderly, disabled, homeless and hungry,
victims of disasters and people in need of help during times of crises.
In addition, the organization operates a Pathways to Work skills
training program, which exposes participants to a high-functioning,
supportive and professional work environment.
“Our efforts to strengthen and grow the Pathways to Work program has led
to several people finding jobs and full-time AmeriCorps positions since
this spring, demonstrating the tremendous opportunity we have to
positively affect our community,” said CUMAC Executive Director Mark
Dinglasan. “By helping NEC Financial Services solve a challenge in its
own business, we are also providing unique and valuable opportunities
for individuals to compete for meaningful jobs and careers.”
CUMAC owns and operates a 28,000 square-foot multi-purpose warehouse in
Paterson, a portion of which now serves as the official warehouse and
inventory management provider for NEC’s asset management process.
Everything from business phone systems and unified communications to
servers, storage and networking equipment now moves through the CUMAC
facility thanks to Pathways to Work participants.
Participants in Pathways to Work have opportunities for on-the-job
skills training, including everything from resume writing and tutoring
to forklift and inventory management training.
