Forward Momentum for 2021

Fresh Start Pallet Products, Inc. had a great year in 2020 in spite of the pandemic. Our team stayed healthy, productive and made advances in their personal lives and individual carpentry skill levels.

This has set the stage for our Social Business to expand in three areas:

  • Adding a highly trained and skilled professional Shop Supervisor/lead trainer. Colin came to us with significant skills in carpentry, furniture restoration and design. This is an opportunity for us to increase the quality of our finished products and broaden our capacity.
  • We now have a well trained core team of craftsmen to support our ever-growing orders for core products, custom work and contract work. 
  • Due to our success in doubling our sales over 2019, we have also doubled our fundraising income due to our many donors with assistance from GlobalGiving. As a result, we are in the process of preparing to open the Fresh Start Academy. This program will support our goal of scaling up the number of trainees we can support and help - while assisting workforce storages in the building trades of Connecticut. Watch for future communications as this new initiaive takes shape. 

Our future success is tied directly to our sustainability goals for 2021. We want to thank our customers, donors, and all of our volunteers for their combined comittment to Fresh Start where we "Build Furniture, while Rebuilding Lives" .
