Mike from New York, NY

Ready to work in construction; I need the proper clothes to get started.

I recently passed my job readiness training and got my credentials; I just need a few pairs of pants and shirts so that I can be ready to work.

My need and situation

I am a 33-year-old man. I am in recovery and in the process of completing my treatment program. Right now, I am focusing on getting a job and entering the construction field.

My goal is to find employment in the construction field. I recently completed a job readiness training and received the credentials I need to work in construction.

I need construction pants and shirts in order to effectively work in this environment. Just a few items to start out and get on track.

Meeting this need will help me because getting the correct clothing will relieve some of the stress of gaining employment as it will allow me to be prepared and effective on the job. Having these clothes will also help me keep the job and continue on a stable path.
