Medix Announces Partnership with Aspire CoffeeWorks to Support Kids and Adults with Developmental Disabilities

(Chicago, Illinois) April 16, 2018 – Medix, a national organization specialized in workforce solutions and recruiting skilled personnel for clients in Scientific, Healthcare and Information Technology industries, has announced a partnership with Aspire CoffeeWorks, a dynamic social enterprise that partners the work of disability-focused nonprofit Aspire with the coffee roasters of Metropolis Coffee Company to support kids and adults with developmental disabilities. This year, Medix is brewing Aspire CoffeeWorks products at every office location across the country. 100 percent of the proceeds go back to Aspire’s services and programs. Each new coffee partner means more opportunities for people with disabilities at Aspire, including the 800 kids with autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy and other disabilities.

“Aspire CoffeeWorks’ dedication to creating inclusive workplaces where everyone can thrive and learn valuable lessons from each other is what makes the organization so special,” said Andrew Limouris, President and CEO of Medix. “Having the delicious Aspire CoffeeWorks products in all our office locations is definitely an added bonus of our growing relationship with Aspire and the journey to spread the word about inclusive workforces.”

Medix and Aspire CoffeeWorks began working together after recognizing their shared passion for cultivating an inclusive work environment and creating opportunities for people with disabilities within their shared local Chicagoland community.

“We’re so grateful for an opportunity to partner with an esteemed company like Medix,” said Jim Kales, Aspire CEO. “Andrew and his Medix team have demonstrated a clear commitment, passion and energy for our mission. Thanks to their support, we will be able to continue positively impacting the lives of kids and adults with disabilities – all through the simple act of drinking a cup of coffee!”
