Employee of the Month
Samsam commenced her entry-level employment with RFCSL April 2016. Currently she holds the position of CDP. Samsam demonstrates exceptional client supports with a high focus on “active listening” while encouraging each and every one to pursue their individual dreams , desires and aspirations.
As we all understand, securing meaningful volunteer placements for our clients can be challenging at best. Samsam was asked if she could assist RFCSL with securing volunteer community placements. With great pride and self-determination, Samsam took immediate action and started her quest searching possible volunteer opportunities for our clients in and around the N.E communities close to RFCSL.
Within a very short period, Samsam secured WINS (Women in Need Society) Thrift Store, which now provides 17 of our clients meaningful volunteer positions. WINS is a friendly and supportive environment and sincerely appreciates the value that each one of our clients bring to their organization. It is so inspiring listening to our client’s share their stories and their individual contributions they bring to the Thrift Store and how it improves the quality of life for Women (and families) in Need.
Additionally, Samsan has secured other potential volunteer leads such as The MCC (Mennonite Central Committee) Thrift Store, and The Salvation Army Thrift Store.
It is RFCSL’s absolute honor to formally recognize Samsam for Employee of the Month as she has exceeded our core value for securing meaningful community volunteer opportunities for the client’s we support.
Congratulations and well done Samsam !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
