Goodwill Success Story: Cassie "One of the hardest workers we have."

For the past two years, the Rite Aid warehouse in Langhorne has been lucky to have Cassie on the job. Described as “dependable” and “one of the hardest workers we have”, she regularly exceeds her quotas unloading and reloading trucks to keep the chain of drug stores stocked.

Before working at the warehouse, Cassie was doing some part time assembly and shipping work but was not happy. She wanted a full time position with benefits, plus her workplace was less than welcoming. After a referral from the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, Cassie began services with a Goodwill Keystone Area Employment Specialist.

The first step was to perform some work assessments, which were helpful in identifying Cassie’s skills and vocational interests. She gets bored when she’s not active and likes to stay busy, so warehouse work was a natural fit for her.

Outside of work, Cassie enjoys visiting her grandfather, spending time at the mall with her girlfriend, playing card games, eating at buffets, and going to waterparks. She likes sports and follows the Phillies, Sixers, and Flyers, and has the courage to admit to liking the Giants over the Eagles.

Cassie continues to find success through work and being a productive member of her community. Her warm smile and unflinching self-advocacy serve as an inspiration and a great example to her family, friends, and co-workers.
