Abilis and the Town of Greenwich announce that Abilis is back for its third year operating the Island Beach Concession stand! After running the concession stand the past two summers, Abilis is excited to run the popular concession again this year and have the stand be an important provider of inclusive jobs for Abilis community members with disabilities and local teens.
“Running the Island Beach concession stand these past two summers has been a great learning experience for our Abilis community members,” noted Amy Montimurro, CEO and president of Abilis. We love this inclusive work environment where individuals are developing skills and enjoying the outdoors on the beautiful island.“
The concession stand offers beach favorites like hot dogs, hamburgers, French fries, a variety of ice cream, popsicles, candy, and new this year are chicken strips, Mac bites, sandwiches, salads, wraps, bagels and baked goods. Beach visitors can also find picnic items like BBQ charcoal, sand buckets, shovels, toys and more.
