Community Leisure—436 William
Hi, my name is Jean Rossell and I work at Community Leisure Program at William. I like playing Bingo at the Recreation & Leisure program. I also like drawing and working on crafts in the Arts & Culture program. In my spare time, I work on rug hooking. The one I’m working on now is called “Country Cottages” and it is a nice scenery picture. I have a lot of friends here and I like going out for coffee with them.
Recycling & Document Destruction—115 Plymouth
The Document Destruction department is operating smoothly and the team is working very well together. Last week the team pulled together and by doing that were able to produce 10-11 shredded bales on a daily basis. My team of Gordon Harris, Donald Spiller, Jason Patzer and Jonathan Barrett have been doing an amazing job.
I would like to introduce the newest member of the team, William Pirrie. William started in Document Destruction a few weeks ago and has been working very well. William has shown interest in working towards his lift truck certification . Once William is certified, his duties will increase. He can’t wait to start moving the shredded bales around. Each shredded bale weighs approximately 1200 lbs.
Keep up the great work guys! William, welcome to the team!
Supported Employment—436 William
Having respect for others helps you be successful on a team. Partners need to help each other, speak kindly, and consider the other person. It is fun to be on a team that works well together. Working with Darrin Dunn at Hydro is a lot of fun. He is a hard worker, and very respectful to everyone. Respectful is the best way to be!
Contract Manufacturing—500 Madison
It’s been a year since the big move to Madison Street. Everyone has transitioned quite nicely! The transportation system which was monumental at the time of the move has been running as smooth as putty. Integrating the buildings has resulted in some new friendships and job experiences. The cafeteria has provided a nice alternative to standard box lunches at very reasonable prices. Changing locations was definitely a challenge but we’ve settled in and strive to provide a meaningful and rewarding day to those we support.
