HEAVENDROPt is a Tampa Bay social enterprise operating under the non-profit Evergreen Life Services that provides disabled veterans and people with disabilities employment opportunities by turning old military parachutes into useful products to sell!
This amazing organization not only supports the military by purchasing and recycling parachutes that otherwise would be discarded or destroyed, but provides meaningful work with competitive wages for those who otherwise may not receive an employment opportunity.
Their products include a wide range of useful items such from neckties, sunglass retainers, jewelry, lanyards, tote bags, keychains, dog bandanas and more!
Evergreen’s primary mission to “provide services and support to persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities” is extended to wounded warriors who need help re-adjusting to life as a civilian. “Self-worth, pride, and acceptance” that is cultivated through employment has a lasting and transformative effect on a positive state of mind for those employed and potentially their families!
