What Happened On My First Day Of Work BLEW My Mind!
You get a new job.
Within the FIRST HOUR on your first day of work, you get a promotion.
Sounds impressive, right?
That’s what happened to me.
But that’s not the whole story…
Before I got the job, I was homeless and sleeping underneath an abandoned truck in Hollywood.
I was addicted to drugs and my life was going nowhere fast.
This is where you came into my life.
Your support with Food on Foot lifted me out of the dark and seemingly bottomless hole I was in.
With your help, I was able to attend Food on Foot’s Work for Food program.
You inspired me to become sober and believe in myself.
You helped me receive a REAL WORLD education with IMPACTFUL results.
This allowed me to SURVIVE and to be SELF SUFFICIENT.
Because of you, I learned how to hit a home run with my job interview.
Because of you, I am now responsible with my money.
Because of you, my emotions are in check and I’m more confident with myself.
Because of you, I sleep safely in my own apartment.
Because of you, I have an awesome job working at Mardi Restaurant inside of Palihouse West Hollywood.
You helped me with a lot of things while I was in the Work for Food program.
Many of these things will last me a lifetime.
Things like a POSITIVE WORK-ETHIC.
Yup…that’s what landed me that PROMOTION within the FIRST HOUR of working at the new job you helped me find.
Here’s how it happened:
On my first day of work, I started off as a dishwasher.
The cook came to me and asked me to help him slice up some potatoes and onions.
“Absolutely,” I said.
I had a GREAT ATTITUDE and I cut up those vegetables like a PRO.
The next thing I knew, I was promoted to Produce and Meat Receiver.
All of this happened within ONE HOUR on the job.
I couldn’t believe it! I was smiling from ear to ear.
I couldn’t have done this without you.
Without you, I would still be homeless and living under that abandoned truck.
Without you, I would probably still be addicted to drugs.
Without you, I’d be unemployed.
You see, you did a lot when you helped me through Food on Foot…
…But most of all, you gave me back my life!
Thank you for everything.
