Annual Breakfast 2021 with Secretary Acosta

Operation ABLE’s held its annual fundraiser on June 9th to support our community of job seekers, the underemployed, those in career transition, and military veterans who are committed and eager to work.

The theme of this year’s event was “Together We Move Forward,” to acknowledge and celebrate our students, our impactful employer and service provider partners, and Operation ABLE’s compassionate and expert staff. We also want to acknowledge and thank our nonprofit and government partners for helping to make our success possible. In addition, the event enabled us to spotlight our full complement of computer skills training programs and the ‘life-changing” impact on students that have successfully graduated from our programs. Just as importantly, this event enables us to thank and recognize our very generous sponsors and donors who make our job training and student success possible.
