Gregory was a Production Associate at a large food distribution company at the time of his injury. He sustained injuries that prevented him from completing his duties, so he began his recovery from the comfort of home. His employer referred him to Transition2Work to perform light duty modified work, and from there he was assigned to work in a local food bank in his community.
Many injured employees find it difficult to adjust to their new routine during recovery, and thanks to Transition2Work, injured workers can find purpose once again. This led to new experiences and new connections, allowing Gregory to make a difference while recovering. His experience has brought him so much joy and appreciation for his community, that he has expressed interest in volunteering at the nonprofit in his spare time, acknowledging the benefits he has received physically and mentally.
