On behalf of the Polus Center, we would like to sincerely thank all of the local businesses and individuals who donated to, volunteered for, and attended this year's Clinton Polish Picnic fundraiser.

Your continued support of this event makes it possible for us to continue innovative employment and training programs for people with disabilities in Massachusetts. This includes an after-school program called the Envision Success Project (ESP), which provides career exploration, internships, and job training for young people age 14-21 who are blind or low vision. Last year we also began two new internship programs, the Employment Now Initiative and the Envision Work program, and we are now launching a Pharmacy Technician training program for young adults with disabilities from the north central MA region.


Live Polish music, traditional foods, and an exciting array of raffle prizes! Our annual fundraiser invites you to join us for a summer celebration!

Summer 2020!
