Rodtrez started a job as a picker and packer at a warehouse that ships cake decorations and supplies. He is currently homeless and is trying to secure stable housing, and he heard about Small Sums from a friend. In his application, he had on requested a bus pass, but as we chatted with him, he told us about his need for steel toe boots in the warehouse and work gloves. We were able these items to him as well and he was surprised and very appreciative.
In a thank you note, he wrote: “I probably could not have taken this job if I had not gotten a bus card. It may not seem like much to you, but your donation was well helpful. Thank you.”
