Jimmy gets a job
Jimmy has been working hard at staying clean and maintaining good status at his residence. He dropped in to see us at the Salvation Army one morning last week and said, “If I could get a bus card, I know I could go to a temp service and start working again.” So for $30 we loaded up a card to give Jimmy the opportunity to come through on his commitment. He stopped in on Friday and said that he started work that week, is still clean and just wanted to thank us for the $30 Go To card (bus pass) because that was the boost he needed to make it happen.
Sometimes it is the small things we do to encourage others, like trusting Jimmy with a $30 bus pass, that help others with the motivation to move forward in life.
