The Daybreak Clubhouse of Martha’s Vineyard Community Services has announced the awarding of certificates of appreciation to the following Island businesses and business leaders: the Martha’s Vineyard Times, the Martha’s Vineyard Chamber of Commerce, the Morning Glory Farms, Murdick’s Fudge, and Murdick’s Fudge General Manager Michael J. McCourt.

By and through their participation in Daybreak’s transitional employment program, these businesses have provided jobs and opportunities to Clubhouse members, assisting in the return of members to independent productive lives in the community.

Daybreak’s transitional assistance program offers temporary, entry level work to Clubhouse members. The work experience is intended to help transition the member back into the work force by providing productive, meaningful employment, albeit temporary.
