During the month of November, the five Pasco County Tax Collector’s Offices raised $3,800 in donations on behalf of AmSkills, a non-profit program created to prepare qualified individuals interested in learning skills to work in the manufacturing field. Based in Pasco County, AMSkills offers programs from entry-level training to job placement assistance throughout the Tampa Bay area.
“AmSkills is bringing hands-on skills training to youth and adults in low-to-mid income neighborhoods through the use of our Mobile Workshop and introducing them to great careers in the manufacturing industry,” states Tom Mudano, President & CEO of AmSkills. “Thank you so much for the generous gift from the community, your incredible support and belief in the AmSkills’ vision to “Transform Lives Through Workforce Training & Apprenticeships”. We are grateful!”
“I have long been a proponent of technical education as an alternative to college, especially for those with talents and abilities that are best suited to manufacturing and technology,” remarks Tax Collector Mike Fasano. “We were proud to support AmSkills during the month of November as our Charity of the Month. I am very grateful to our hardworking staff and a very generous community for helping us raise these funds. Thank you to all who made this fundraising effort possible.”
