This Wednesday our program focuses on a ‘hand-up’, when our Satellite membership formally donates an auto to Larimer County Workforce Center participant Alexis
Marchiani. Our program MCs and Satellite Membership donation program sponsors are Lucinda Kerschensteiner and Kerrie Luginbill. In addition, last year’s recipient, Andy Osbourne, will share how his car has enabled progress towards his degree in engineering.
Satellite will also have a special announcement and surprise for Alexis, so be sure to attend! Alexis Marchiani is a single mother of four and a student, working with the Larimer County Workforce Center’s career transition program. According to her application, “I am working very hard to finish my nursing program, start my career and change our lives for the better. Not having reliable transportation makes success harder than it needs to be, but I will not give up. This automobile will allow me to accomplish my goals and secure a successful future for myself and my children.”
The autos provided last year to Andy, and to Alexis this year were both donated by Cjay Manthey, owner of Cutting Edge Automotive, a used car dealership on North College Ave. Besides the two autos donated through Rotary, Cjay provides a car each year to a Project Self-Sufficiency participant. Cjay will also join us.
​Andy Osbourne is a single father of three boys, studying engineering at CSU. We are pleased to support both Andy and Alexis in their educational and life pursuits!
