The following story is a transcript of a talk by one of our employees, Sonny. Sonny gave this testimonial at our annual St. Francis Dinner on March 30th 2017.
My name is Sonny Pippin I go to the Cathedral of St. Helena and St. Marys. I have been working at Good Samaritan for 2 years, I started in April 2015. I work part time in clothing department, hang clothing in the back and keep the clothing stocked on the shelves.
Also I sometimes I will run the bailer or whatever else needs to get done.
The thing I like best about this place is it makes me feel like I am making a difference in the community and it makes me feel like I am worth something.
Working here makes me feel like I am being a help to the homeless and the other people Good Samaritan helps. I like giving back in this way because I was once homeless and I kinda relate in that way.
I like the people and the atmosphere. They make me feel like I am part of a family and team.
Thank you Good Samaritan for taking a chance and believing in my when nobody else did. Thank you for listening to my story.
