PC Survivors of Mass. co-sponsors Wounded Nature cleanup

PCS of Mass. is supporting U.S. veterans and the environment in one fell swoop. We’re co-sponsoring a Wounded Nature cleanup boat this year. The boat is staffed with veterans and will travel along the East Coast, kicking off their trip in Charleston, South Carolina.

WoundedNature.org is an IRS approved 501c3 non-profit charity serving to clean up the environment employing veterans reentering the civilian workforce. The organization only raises money through donations, memberships, sponsorships, and grants.WoundedNature.org has minimum overhead and funds raised annually go directly to fund the mission and operation of Wounded Nature, the houseboats.

In the summer of 2014 the houseboats will move up the East Coast. As the ship moves north it will be docked at the closest large port each month as employees return home for their days off. In general, our employees will work for 20 straight days and have 10 days off each month. Workers will be bused or flown between their home port and the ship’s current work location.

Employing Veterans

Wounded Nature hires prequalified unemployed veterans through the Veterans Administration’s job assistance program.  These workers are hired as temporary workers for 120 days.

The veterans will spend the first two days being trained about boat life, safety rules, and clean-up procedures. According to the website, veterans learn to regain confidence as they participate in public relations and educational events as paid employees and members of the Wounded Nature staff.

Each veteran will perform a number of tasks exposing them to a number of disciplines. These disciplines include manual labor, environmental remediation, wildlife rescue, maintenance, ship and boat handling, public relations, community relations, social media marketing, event planning and hosting, cooking, marine research, etc.

Our program allows veterans to earn a paycheck while performing a wide variety of tasks over a short period of time. This will help our veterans focus their job hunting or attend college and choose an area of study in a discipline with which they have found an interest or comfort zone.

Italian Cowboy Harry James boat

As we announced before, we’re teaming up to become honorary crew members for the new Italian Cowboy Harry James sponsored coastal cleanup boat.

As a National Guard veteran and someone who cares deeply about the environment, Harry and his team were looking for a way to give back and make the world a better place.  When Harry James heard that Wounded Nature and Working Veterans needed to purchase 5 cleanup boats that would be staff by veterans, he contacted the non-profit immediately and said “what can we do to get one of your boats funded?”

And that’s where PC Survivors of Mass. stepped in. We’re proud to support veterans as well as do our part to take care of the environment.

National Guard honors electronic recycler PC Survivors

National Guard honors PCS company

PCS of Massachusetts CEO Lisa DiPaolo Bacewicz admist the current stream of electronics in the process of being recycled at her 7500 Sq. ft. facility in Weymouth.

PC Survivors of Weymouth was recently given the Patriot Award, which is given to businesses by the Department of Defense Guard and Reserve to recognize extraordinary support of an employee who serves in the National Guard. The orginal article appeared in the Marshfield Mariner last week.

The Weymouth-based business, PC Survivors of MA, LCC, owned by Marshfield residents Lisa and Charles Bacewicz, employs about a dozen young professionals. One of them is Etzer Aunaxe of Brockton, a member of the National Guard who serves monthly and at times during the year for stretches of several weeks.

Aunaxe takes both his National Guard and private employment responsibilities seriously, Lisa said. When he was hired, Lisa said he was open with his potential supervisors about the occasional constraints of his commitment to national service.

“We never gave it a second thought,” said Lisa. “We believed allowing him to go was the right thing to do and a way we could, in a small way, support the causes of the nation. We also knew that by hiring an experienced guardsman, we got so much more in expertise, skill, loyalty, dedication and trustworthiness.”
