UPS package handlers' starting pay is $22/hour. Greg was really glad he was able to find work there. Benefits are great and he hears that UPS is a great company to work for.

But. Steel toe boots are required and Greg couldn't go to his first day of work without them. We outfitted him with the boots, some work clothes,  socks, and a jacket. He was also able to stock up on some groceries from our food shelf.

Greg's next move is finding stable housing so that he can continue to build a better bond with his son. He has dreams of going back to school and also obtaining a driver's license.

He is staying the course and keeping his eye on the prize. "I'm doing what I've gotta do, until I am able to do what I want to do."
