Good morning friends of Care and Share!
Please enjoy this month’s staff highlight:
My name is Jason Schenk and I work with the Order Fulfillment team building the orders that go out to our numerous agencies across Southern Colorado. Before I arrived here I worked in food service for about 10 years, and sorely needed a change. I started volunteering at Care and Share and immediately noticed that the cultural environment was much more welcoming than I expected. Their mission and values are in line with my own, and since all the people share that common goal it makes the work intrinsically rewarding. What I really enjoy about my job here is using my spatial awareness while driving the forklift, and the mathematics involved in counting the varying products housed in the distribution center. Working here keeps my mind sharp and my body active, which is exactly what I needed. This is the best job I’ve ever had. I have worked here since August 27th 2015, which just so happens to be my little sister Trinity’s birthday.
Since we’re in the Halloween season, we asked Jason about his favorite trick (or treat):
For Halloween I tend to dress up as my namesake Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th, which is rather fitting because I was born on the 12th while my mother was born on Friday the 13th.
Thanks for reading and have a great day!
