On Friday, April 1, 2011,  Mayor Harry Price of Fairfield and Mayor Peter Sanchez of Suisun City, with Executive Director Margaret Farman, cut the ribbon marking the opening of our new business located at 2860 Cordelia Road, Suite 100.  Accompanied by Ambassadors from the Fairfield/Suisun City Chamber of Commerce, Mayors Price & Sanchez and Margaret welcomed local business owners, family members, and friends of United Cerebral Palsy of the North Bay to our open house celebration.

Modeled after WineBev Services, our successful packaging business in Napa, Gone for Good specializes in secure document destruction and recycling services.  Bay Area businesses will benefit from contracting with Gone for Good because our services will exceed industry standards established by the National Association of Information Destruction.

The opening of Gone for Good also meets our goal of having an office and employment program in Solano County.  We will initially employ 24 adults with developmental disabilities and we anticipate growing to 48 by June 2011.  We received a portion of the start-up funds needed for Gone for Good from NISH, the national non-profit agency designated by the federal government to create employment opportunities for people with severe disabilities.

“We are excited about this new employment opportunity for the people we serve and as an additional service line we can offer businesses in the region,” says Dennis Blong, Gone for Good President of Business Operations.

“Although we will be providing the most secure shredding in the industry, what makes us so unique is that our business was developed to create jobs for adults with developmental disabilities.”
