Endeavour Foundation has celebrated an incredible 2000 days without injury at its commercial site in Mareeba.
The Mareeba site was established in its current location 34 years ago, largely through the work of local volunteers, to provide meaningful work opportunities for people with a disability across the Atherton Tablelands.
Once a farm, growing and packing cherry tomatoes for market, Endeavour Foundation’s North Queensland General Manager, Catherine Fairlie, said the facility’s supported workers now undertake a range of commercial activities.
“Our amazing supported workers really put the word “ability” into disability,” Ms Fairlie said.
“They cut, process and pack industrial cleaning cloths for heavy industry and retail, they can do mailing and collating work for any local business and do a great job packing and labelling coffee for another one of our commercial partners.
“Four years ago, we also began a partnership with the Atherton Regional Council, when we opened our Recycle Market, turning trash into treasure.
“I’d like to congratulate our Mareeba employees for the hard work and effort they’ve put in to achieving this safety milestone of 2000 days loss time injury free.”
Gary DeLai works three days a week at the Endeavour Foundation Mareeba site, which his parents helped establish.
His father and mother John and Delsi DeLai were instrumental in working alongside the Lions Club to establish the site 34 years ago.
“I like coming to work and cutting the industrial cleaning cloth,” Gary DeLai said.
“I follow the safety rules because you have to be careful when you cut the rags.”
The 2000 day loss time injury free milestone celebration was also attended by Joe Paronella Mayor of the Tablelands Regional Council and from the Mareeba Shire Council, Mayor Tom Gilmore and Councillor Angela Toppin.
