Allen VanVoorhis

Variety is the spice of life. Allen VanVoorhis, of Avon, NY, can attest to that. He has always had a strong desire to work and earn a paycheck, so it’s not surprising he works a few hours each week at several different jobs including Vincenzo’s and Clemenza’s Pizzerias, Noye’s Hospital, Groveland and York Town Halls and Noblehurst Farms.

Allen has a strong work ethic, is always prepared for his day and takes great pride in his work. But it is his infectious attitude and positive spirit that endears him to those around him, as his job morale boosts that of his coworkers. He is described as a true team player. Allen has developed strong relationships with his coworkers and looks forward to seeing them each week.

When Allen is not working, he enjoys vacationing with People and Places, an organization that plans vacations for adults with developmental disabilities, and listening to country stars Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn.

And that is what makes Allen One of a Kind.
