Cattlemens donates to Sacramento special needs school
Cattlemens Steakhouse Donates to Special Needs School in Honor of Award Winning Employee
Cattlemens Steakhouse donated $2,500 to Odyssey Learning Center in honor of the Pete Gillham Sr. “Changing People’s Lives” Award” 2015-2016 recipient Miranda Smith. The Cattlemens “Changing People’s Lives” award is named after Pete Gillham Senior, founder of Cattlemens, and awarded annually to an outstanding Cattlemens employee that has shown extraordinary compassion, action and community service on the job. In recognition of this accomplishment, Cattlemens donated to the charity of Miranda’s choice- Odyssey Learning Center. Odyssey Learning Center is an all autistic, non-profit school based in Orangevale, CA. It serves 86 students on the autism spectrum that are low-functioning with great needs. Odyssey’s learning environment is personalized curriculum with a 2:1 teacher to student ratio; the only non-profit school of it’s kind in the greater Sacramento area. Doug Nordby, Odyssey Learning Center’s director stated, “We are so very grateful to Cattlemens and Miranda for this donation, our school does not get many private donations as we rely solely on limited school district funding. We will be assessing the greatest need that this donation will impact. 100% of this money will benefit students and teachers.”
