Our Transition2Work Partnership
ReEmployAbility has placed several injured workers as volunteers at the Jubilee Center of South Broward. One in particular, James, made an amazing impact while volunteering for the Center.
James was assigned to The Jubilee Center as a Center Assistant to prepare meals, sorting and marking donations, and complete work on the computer, and went above and beyond. The Jubliee Center commented on his work ethic saying, “Jim is exceedingly above average in work quality, quantity, and professionalism. He could not be a more valued colleague….Jim continues to excel in every way and deserves any special recognition you offer. He exceeds expectations daily in productivity, quality, and character.”
James’ contribution was appreciated so much that he was recognized for exemplary service by both his employer and the Jubilee Center! The Center honored him as a hero for taking on the challenge of organizing the center’s warehouse and even awarded him Volunteer of the Year. He also received a Community Service award from his employer in January 2015!
We are happy to have a strong partnership with the Jubilee Center of South Broward and hope to send them many more volunteer’s like James.
