11/13/14 — Wade Elliott, 2014 GOOD Growth Award Winner

Congratulations to Wade Elliott, the 2014 GOOD Growth Award Winner. The Good Growth Award honors an individual who has advanced through a Goodwill Food program with improved food service skills and who has influenced the quality of meals provided to hungry people in Northern Michigan.

Wade is a man of action, and one of few words. Hear about Wade below from his supervisor and department director:

You know you’ve got a reliable, dedicated employee when you can set your watch by the time they walk through the door. Wade Elliott is one of those employees. For more than a decade, Wade has been preparing over 800 meals a day for the hungry men and women that depend on Meals on Wheels throughout Northern Michigan.

During his career at Goodwill, it is estimated that he has helped produce over 1.5 million meals for our hungry neighbors. That is a tremendous accomplishment for one person. He is so focused on his job and such a natural caregiver that if you ask him about the impact he’s had on his community, he’ll just shrug and give a slight smile before returning to his task.

We are proud to work with people like Wade Elliott. Keep up the GOOD work!
