In this time I have worked at a Guest Chef dinner, I have helped at a food giveaway where I loaded cars, and I volunteered for kettle season.

I know a lot of the people who use the facility for their needs and I have a good relationship with them. I have a basic knowledge of the job and what needs to be done, and I care very much for our community and the work that the Salvation Army does. As helping others is one of my main priorities.

I am motivated and committed to learning new skills on the job. I am dependable and able to take and give orders. I am a team player and I take pride in doing quality work.
