Hi, I am Mary Angelini Co Founder of Gabi’s! I was crushed when I realized NO ONE would hire my daughter, despite her love of service, hard work and bubbly personality.
This discrimination is super-common for adults with special abilities. Only 18% of adults with a special ability are employed. That’s why Gabi and I are focused on employing more people with special abilities. We currently have over 40 employees at our 2 nonprofit companies.
Gabi’s PALS (Packaging, Assembling, Labeling, Shipping) is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping individuals with special abilities. Our operations are focused on providing meaningful employment and workplace training for these individuals so that they can become self-reliant and self-supporting. We would love to help your company with any fulfillment needs at your warehouse or at The Loading Dock!
Gabi’s GROUNDS sells coffee/tea and merchandise on our website or at our warehouse at The Loading Dock 1053 E. Whitaker Mill Rd in Raleigh. We also do pop up events with hot or iced coffees!
Gabi’s Grounds mission is to EMPOWER the SPECIAL ABILITIES COMMUNITY to find their place in the world and ENJOY FULFILLMENT in everything they do.
We promote equal access to persons with disabilities in our workplace. We create market value that includes everyone in an enriched community while providing great coffee and a unique customer service experience.
