Opportunity Services continues to celebrate October and National Disability Employment Awareness Month with this story in Florida. Three Opportunity Services clients: Derrell, Rennard, and Ishmael began working at Earth Fare in Jacksonville, Florida during the first part of September following the grand opening of the Jacksonville store. All three Opportunity Services clients are part-time baggers and for all three, this was their first job opportunity! Derrell hopes to work his way up with the company, seeing bagging as the first step into his career. Rennard constantly wants to learn more on the job, he is already efficient bagging groceries so he’s added in zoning the grocery carts. Ishmael loves his job, as a people person he truly enjoys interacting with customers everyday. All three clients bring smiles to the faces of customers and have become a part of the team at Earth Fare.

The success stories of these three clients are a great example of how business partnerships between Opportunity Services and a business, such as Earth Fare, impact the lives of the people with disabilities. All three of these gentlemen had never had the opportunity to be employed. Now all three are out working in the community at a job and business they love!
