Random Acts of Kindness

On Thursday, 23 July 2009 an anonymous storyteller wrote,

Charles is always pleasant and available to answer any question you might ask him. He makes everything at the center transparent and is a hard worker when he is needed in the dining room.

On Friday, 26 June 2009 an anonymous storyteller wrote,

Serving as the ever-gracious host, Charles circulated among the tables at the Fathers' Day BBQ and slipped off to the kitchen to create an impromptu (and delicious) orange punch when a non-alcoholic alternative was requested.

On Saturday, 20 June 2009 an anonymous storyteller wrote,

On Charles's first day as the acting director of the Center, he noticed a shortage of staff on the dining room floor at lunch he strapped on an apron and went to work delivering plates and bussing tables!
