As we continue our celebration of Second Chance Month this April, we are happy to spotlight Miller Electric Company as one of our Second Chance Supporters. The company has not only been a valued employment partner since 2012, but Miller Electric is generous financial supporter of Operation New Hope as well.
Miller Electric is committed to helping people make the most of their second chances after paying their debt to society and has hired 11 of our Ready4Work graduates. Clients placed with Miller Electric report what a great company they are to work for in that they provide competitive pay and training to advance careers in the electrical field.
Check out this great news piece featuring Ready4Work graduate Aaron Ford who has been working at Miller Electric for several years now. He shared with News4Jax that he was able to vote in his first presidential election in 2020 because of the support he has received at Miller Electric and Operation New Hope.
Miller Electric is also a generous supporter of our work. They sponsored our inaugural Mulligans for Hope golf tournament last fall and are proud sponsors of our upcoming Hope Starts Here 5k on May 21, 2022. We are so thankful for their continued support and their commitment to improving our community.
