He told me that his sales position in the Macy's shoe department had been indefinitely suspended because of the pandemic. With your support, Jubilee Jobs had helped Dan get his Macy's job in 2019. He loved it. He won a top salesman award several times over the course of the year and relied on the generous commissions that he earned. Dan was desperate to find a new job to replace the income he had lost. He couldn't risk being kicked out of his room in one of the city's transitional housing programs.
