DCS caseworker Kevin Loving gives a Shout Out to fellow employees Connaire Fernandez and Marlena Perez for their exceptional teamwork and help in providing food for those that need it.
I want to thank my co-workers once again. I would like to thank Connaire and Marlena for their continued support and help.
I had a family that was in need of formula. Marlena and Connaire went above and beyond in their efforts to help this family. Marlena took it upon herself to look at the food bank and even calling WIC to see if there was any chance of getting more formula. She was unable but Connaire managed to leverage some of his contacts and was able to secure a case. This allowed me to provide the family with formula cover the need and also allowed the office to have a very limited emergency supply. Through their combined efforts Connaire and Marlena ensured that a baby was fed.
I would also like to thank Marlena for going out of her way to provide another family with food resources. Not only did she provide the family with a food box, which she delivered after hours, but also provided the family with resource so that in the future they can help themselves.
I want to thank my co-workers for their diligent efforts and willingness to go above and beyond for the families we serve. Connaire and Marlena are both truly committed to the health and safety of Arizona's families, as demonstrated by their actions.
Well said, Kevin. And great job, Marlena and Connaire!
