It seems like another ordinary day – our Netsmart associates are working in the office when an individual stops by and asks them if they’d like to buy a snack. Some kindly decline and while others take the opportunity to purchase an afternoon nibble. A transaction is completed and the person moves on to the next desk, making friendly conversation with everyone along the way. Seems pretty average, right? The truth is, with every sale, our associates are helping that individual grow, one snack at a time.
Meet Billy, a 21-year-old with autism who runs Rolling Snacks, a snack cart that sells treats to associates at our Great River, N.Y. office. Every two weeks Billy stocks his cart with sweet and savory snacks ranging from five cents to $2, giving associates a nice opportunity to refuel during the day.
