Trying to find a local job for their son but finding it difficult, the Sotir family decided starting their own organization would be the best option.
And in July 2020, they were able to do it with the help of their friends, the Karlins.
Earn With a Purpose
The two families started non-profit, Earn With a Purpose. The organization hires people with diverse developmental abilities.
“They’re really involved in all facets of the business,” said co-founder Russ Karlins. “Anything from going to the manufacturer and picking out the products, to packaging it up and sending it out to other states, to delivering it to local customers.”
Chicago-based company, Gold Eagle, manufactures and supplies the products they sell including hand sanitizer and surface cleaner.
