Lisbon’s Stage Left Players’ Director Kandy Cleland received a donation of paper towels from Darlene and Frankie representing EDI, a non-profit corporation that operates as an opportunity center where individuals with disabilities receive habilitation services, perform jobs, learn job skills and connect with their community. EDI activity director Tina Cochran had contacted Cleland to make her aware that the group had selected Stage Left Players as their April project, and to ask what the Trinity Playhouse would need. Cleland knew what to ask for. “Paper towels. We’re hoping to re-open the doors to the community soon, so we have lots of cleaning up to do, and lots of working hands to dry.”
