Welcome to The CanDo Shops @ Don Guanella Village on the Web!

The CanDo Shops @ Don Guanella Village are one of the leading outsourcing and fulfillment companies in Delaware County. With 35 years of experience, we provide meaningful employment opportunities for men and women in a structured environment that serves the needs of individuals whose developmental handicaps prevent them from competing in the open job market. We operate like any other light assembly or service shop. We bid on contracts, and jobs are set up in our shops in such a way that they can be handled by our employees safely and efficiently. All of the work we do for a company is supervised by our production staff to ensure that each project gets the attention it deserves, and that each customer gets the results they desire.

Over the years that the CanDo Shops have been serving the manufacturing and fulfillment industry, we have developed an enthusiastic and dependable 194 person work force known for fast turnaround and quality job work. We are a well-known sub-contracting firm that focuses on all types of collating, packaging and manual subassembly, including: marketing display assembly, training manual assembly, new employee kit assembly, envelope stuffing, shrink wrapping, and box forming.

Our mission comes alive when you meet people like Kieran or Terry who are served by our programs. With the help of a production supervisor, Kieran, an outgoing young man, has mastered a variety of skills in the CanDo Shops that enabled him to move on to a supervised in-house job in our housekeeping department, then to operate the snack cart for staff and workers, finally to volunteer stocking shelves in a community consignment shop. His goal is to leave the sheltered workshop and work in a community setting. Terry is a young woman who does not talk. Through the use of a picture board and occasional special assistance from her production supervisor she has learned to accomplish small assembly jobs at the CanDo Shops. The supportive environment of the CanDo Shops provide just the right opportunities for Terry These are just two of 194 individuals with developmental disabilities who are supported through the CanDo Shops @ Don Guanella Village.

If you are either a company with a need for sub-assembly, collating or packaging tasks that need to be done efficiently in a cost-saving fashion, or a person with a developmental disability (or family member) who wants to be productive during the day, please fee free to contact us.
