Tenco’s Fairfield office held a soup supper and bake sale Feb. 8 at the Fairfield Elks Lodge, but unfortunately, Mother Nature was not cooperative and let the snow fly.

“While the individuals and staff at Tenco enjoyed preparing and serving at this event, we know numbers were down due to the weather,” said Mendy McAdams, marketing and development director of Tenco Inc.

Anyone wanting to support the mission of Tenco, but unable to attend the soup supper, are encouraged to reach out to the office in Fairfield at 472-9233 or Ottumwa at 641-682-8114.

Tenco is a nonprofit corporation, founded in 1965, that currently serves more than 315 people with disabilities.

In this, its 52nd year, Tenco operates vocational programs in Centerville, Fairfield, and Ottumwa; adult day habilitation services in Centerville, Fairfield, and Ottumwa; and residential services in Centerville, Keosauqua, Fairfield, Knoxville, Ottumwa, and Oskaloosa.

Tenco also manages a transition home in Fairfield and residential care facilities in Keosauqua and Knoxville.

In addition, Tenco is working to be certified to provide pre-vocational, residential and adult day habilitation services for people with disabilities, and pre-vocational services in Chariton.
