Ohio Valley Goodwill’s Community Access program participants were just a few of the special guests that attended the CARA Group’s special performance of “Harvesting the Moment” presented by The Humanity Machine on Saturday, November 23rd at the Anderson Theater. The musically-based production conveys the themes of love, humanity, caring for one another and the planet and does so in a provocative way against the backdrop of the metal sculpture of artist Edward Casagrande. Co-producers, Mark Macomber and Edward Casagrande collaborated on writing the play which is designed to engage audiences in a variety of sensory experiences with the ultimate goal of encouraging enlightenment.
Ohio Valley Goodwill is a founding member of the CARA Group and was pleased to have the opportunity to offer the individuals the organization supports the chance to attend the premier of this first-time ever event. Both Macomber and Casagrande have dedicated their talents to volunteer efforts to support the mission of the CARA Group for many years. “The Humanity Machine” and its production was another wonderful opportunity to offer a unique, community-oriented activity for individuals with developmental disabilities that benefit from life-enriching experiences through CARA.
Goodwill’s Community Access program is just once of the many services that the organization provides to individuals through its partnerships with County Board of Developmental Disabilities. Goodwill is able to offer a comprehensive array of services that address everything from skill training to job placement to life-enriching activities.
