“A tremendous work ethic”…

Curtis Bloom and his parents moved into the SARAH Inc. area from Fairfield last summer.  Curtis had a great job at an auto dealership in Fairfield in the parts department and wanted to waste no time finding a job with SARAH’s help in Madison.  Curtis secured a job in December as a porter at Stop and Shop in Madison. A porter handles cart retrieval and return and customer assistance on small requests and bottle returns. He works three to four nights per week from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.  Curtis loves his job, coworkers and the community he lives in!  Curtis is known as a hard-working employee who can be counted on. Most recently Stop and Shop suffered a power outage due to one of the Nor’easters that blew into town.  Curtis stayed with his manager and coworkers until 2:00 am to help them put perishables into freezers so the food would not spoil.  When asked how working until 2:00 a.m. felt, Curtis replied “I got one heck of a paycheck that week!”  Job ideas for SARAH Inc. participants?  Contact Jen Kostek, JKostek@sarah-inc.org
