OPX recently had the pleasure and honor to donate our time and design services to helping Community Support Services (CSS), a Gaithersburg-based nonprofit that provides services and support to children and adults with autism and other developmental disabilities. The organization wanted to create an equitable space that employs both individuals with developmental disabilities and those who are not disabled. Nancy Corr (parent of a CSS resident and interior designer) was asked to design the space for the restaurant and she worked closely with OPX to realize a design that tells the story of CSS, healthy food, and living with our friends and families with disabilities. OPX was more than happy to contribute. We’re happy to announce that That’s A Wrap is officially open for business!
