Gainesville, GA (June 22, 2022) For many years, The Harris Products Group has provided financial support for a non-profit just down the street from its Gainesville, Georgia, facility. The organization, Sisu, brings educational, therapeutic, nursing and support services to children with special needs in 16 counties in northeast Georgia. Sisu’s integrated learning environment allows children from 6 weeks to 6 years with special needs to learn and interact alongside their typically developing peers.

This spring, Harris donated $25,000, bringing its total support over the years to more than $285,000. These donations have helped build new classrooms, improved playgrounds and assisted with Sisu’s administrative costs. 

“At Harris, we’re proud to continue our annual charity contribution to Sisu, our friend and neighbor,” said Melissa Nolan, Human Resources Manager at Harris.Over the years, many of our employees have had children enrolled at Sisu and we are happy to be able to support them both financially and as a good neighbor.

Sisu is a Finnish concept that relates to inner determination, persistence, grit, bravery, resilience, hardiness and indomitable spirit. This is the mindset that Sisu encourages to help these children reach beyond perceived capabilities and take action against all odds.

More information about Sisu can be found at mysisu.org.
