Impact – Matt a Natural Community Connection
Matt has a personality unlike any other! He is always cheerful and smiling. Matt has a natural ability to spark a conversation with anyone, and make them feel welcomed and comfortable. Matt had a great natural community connection at King’s Pizza in Falling Waters, WV. His family frequents there often to grab some dinner. Matt has built a connection here and is part of the family. For over a year, Matt and his employment supports searched high and low for the perfect job. Something that Matt could be himself and social, as well as work hard and at his own pace.
King’s Pizza wound up being that place!! Who knew right?! He already had the natural supports there and was loved by all! Matt’s position was customized with the owner of King’s Pizza based on his abilities, and the needs of King’s Pizza. He was hired and began his first day on May 8th 2017. Matt currently works Monday and Tuesdays from 11a-3p. Matt completes various tasks assigned to him, such as cleaning the tables and items on them, as well as the chairs and highchairs. Matt even goes above and beyond, on his own, to help his fellow staff members. He can be found busing tables and wiping them down!!
Matt has been a great addition to the team at King’s. The other staff and owner, Sal, have nothing but positive things to say about him and always with a smile on their faces when they greet Matt. Congratulations Matt ! When Matt isn’t at work he can be found spending time with his family, who he talks frequently of!
He also enjoys jam sessions in the car on the way to work and can always bring a smile to your face even on a cloudy day!!
