Mary Clayton is the definition of loyalty. She has worked for Goodwill for 47 YEARS! Back in the 1970s, Mary was working for Green Acres Regional Center, a water bottling company in the local area. She then moved to Goodwill to work for the training center, doing contract work. She would sort shoes, hang up and sort merchandise (she once did 15 clothing racks in one day!), and other duties. She is now in charge of feeding paper through the shredder, which she has been doing since "way long ago"! Mary's day-to-day duties include feeding paper into a shredder, sorting the shreds into cages and sending them to be baled. She also will put clothing into salvage for recycling. She completes about 6 cages per day, meaning she is a pretty productive lady! Outside of work, Mary loves singing Rock n Roll and Christian songs with her friends in her assisted living community. She says Goodwill has taught her to cope with special situations, how to be a team player, and allows her to earn money to pay her bills to be independent. Mary's story is so unique and we have been beyond blessed to have her for nearly 50 years!
