TAMPA, FL (WFLA) — Have a SunPass? Then you’ve helped MacDonald Training Center in Tampa provide job-skills training, income, and meaningful careers for adults with cognitive and physical disabilities.

In 2007, MTC won a contract to package SunPass transponders – a game changer for the organization.

“It really dispelled the myths that society may have had about what people with disabilities can actually accomplish. And they exceed our expectations every day,” says Karenee Levy, President/CEO of MTC.

Revenue generated from the SunPass contract helps MTC continue to provide services to the people it serves, even when funding from the government is cut. And it gives men and women the opportunity to learn new job skills and earn a competitive wage.

On the first day of the contract, 100 SunPass transponders were packaged. Now, as many as 12,000 are boxed up in a single day. Wednesday, the 10 Millionth SunPass was completed.
