Leslie Lucas is employed at the Goodwill Reynolds Rd. in-store Donation Station. Lucas, as he likes to be called, started his position as a Donation Station Attendant on December 22. He says that he really enjoys the position as it allows him to get out of his apartment, be with good people (which he really enjoys) and earn some money.
Lucas is trying to save money to move out of his present apartment building into something nicer with better surroundings. His supervisor, Harry, says he has never had anyone pick up on the job as quickly as Lucas did.
Keep up the great work, Lucas.
