Sarah from Chicago, IL

Work clothes and a metrology kit will get me started in my new career.

I wasn't making enough to cover my expenses working in retail, so I'm training to be a machinist. I need work gear to take a job in the field.


Sarah says, I have a job and I am doing great! Apr 28, 2015

Sarah is now working and using the skills she learned in training. She is very grateful for the work clothes that she was able to get from Benevolent. Sarah wants the people who donated to know that she will put her work clothes to good use, starting tomorrow.


I am currently enrolled in the CNC Fast Track Training Program at Jane Addams Resource Corporation. I am very ambitious and driven to become successful.

My goals are to graduate and complete my CNC training. I would like to be placed in a job as CNC operator. I plan to work hard, get on-the-job training, and eventually become a CNC programmer. My goal is to get as far as possible in my field and be the best I can be.

I have worked in retail and in the food service industry for most of my working life. I was not making enough to cover my expenses and I decided that I needed a career change. I am excited about the opportunities that I will have now that I am training to be a CNC operator. I need work boots and work clothes. I need to have my own metrology kit to practice measurements for interviews and make sure that I am ready to be an effective employee on day one.

Meeting this need will help me because it will help me to be prepared to work in my field and to be successful.
