NEWPORT, PA - One-Stop Communications of PA, Inc. was recently awarded
$2,174 through the Small Business Advantage Grant Program. Launched by
Governor Rendell in July 2004, the grant program provides a 50-percent
match for equipment or processes to reduce energy consumption and promote
pollution prevention for Pennsylvania manufacturers and service providers.
One-Stop Communications is one of 48 Pennsylvania businesses that are
investing in energy efficiency. "The high costs of electricity and fuel
are affecting all of us," said Governor Rendell. "From families to small
businesses to large corporations, these rising costs are making it harder
to stretch a budget or earn a profit, but there are steps that we can
take. These innovative firms recognize that and they are making the
investments necessary to use energy in a smarter fashion, which means
lower expenses and higher margins."
One-Stop Communications has matched the $2,174 grant to purchase and
install high-efficiency heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning
equipment with zone controls to conserve energy at their Newport location.

Charity Honors Lewistown Business for Support of Vocational Training Program (Originally Posted 12/30/07)
On December 12, Skills of Central PA, Inc. (Skills) honored Michael Buffington, owner of One Stop Communications, with a certificate of appreciation for his contributions to its computer recycling program. Skills’ regional vice president Jolene Ernst and community services director Karen Weyant presented the award to Buffington at his store located at 126 Electric Avenue.
Thanks, in large part, to Buffington’s efforts, Skills has diverted over 20 tons of computer-related materials from area landfills. Through One Stop Communications, Buffington serves as a point of contact to the public, promoting recycling and collecting outdated and end-of -life computer equipment for Skills’ recycling program in Juniata County. The computers are then disassembled and shipped to various recyclers in PA.
Buffington’s efforts not only benefit the environment, they support people with disabilities. Donating computer-related materials to Skills’ vocational training and industrial services programs provides individuals with developmental disabilities with an opportunity to learn valuable employment (and pre-employment) skills in a supportive environment -- while earning a paycheck.
“Improving the quality of life for people with disabilities while protecting our environment is a major undertaking,” said Ernst. “Michael’s partnership with Skills is one example of the positive steps that have been taken in this direction.”
Skills began its computer recycling program in February, 2005. “Keeping computers out of landfills is a primary goal of the program,” said Ernst, “We felt compelled to acknowledge Michael’s hard work to that end. When a computer is buried in a landfill, there is a high risk of the toxic chemicals contained within it eventually leaching into the groundwater.”
The award criteria are: Community and public involvement; partnership and collaboration; effectiveness; and other specific considerations.
Founded in 1960, Skills is one of the oldest and largest private non-profit human service organizations in Central Pennsylvania serving people with disabilities. Skills employs 900 staff throughout 14 counties and support 1300 individuals.
