with George Prenderville

Good Morning and welcome to Week 3 of our National Disability Employment Awareness Month Celebration! Today we highlight and recognize George Prenderville who works at a Chili's Restaurant in Middlesex County. George works three days a week and he utilizes AccessLink for the transportation he needs to get him to his job. When arriving at work, George does prep work so that his colleagues who cook can do so quickly and efficiently. In addition, he also completes the portion bags for paradise pies, slider buns and other menu items as needed. George has a great relationship with his co-workers because he's friendly, outgoing and always willing to help. 

Recently, George celebrated 20 years of employment at Chili's and he was honored with a beautiful watch from his employer in recognition of this outstanding accomplishment!

 Be sure to check back next week, October 26, for    our final edition of Wednesday's Watch Me Work    Series.

"I am proud to support National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM). Held each October, NDEAM aims to educate about disability employment issues and celebrate the many and varied contributions of America's workers with disabilities. I urge businesses to consider the role they play in fostering a disability-friendly work culture."
