Congratulations to Abe, our October Featured Employee of the Month!
Abe is a Food Warehouse Driver who's been with the Agency for over a year and a half.
Abe's favorite part of working at Mid Michigan Community Action is, "I really enjoy helping people in need. My position here allows me to interact with people in a capacity that some of our specialists don’t get to. The folks we serve seem much more relaxed when dealing with us. They open up to us about their needs which in turn allows us to help them secure services they might not have otherwise known about."
Thank you for all your hard work, Abe!
