Anthony Darden doesn't let his personal challenges get in the way of helping others. 

Greensboro --  Complaining about our jobs comes way too easily for many of us.  Anthony Darden serves breakfast and lunch, cleans up after people, takes out the trash... and doesn't get paid for the majority of the time he's at work! 

Does your job seem better yet?

Darden has Autism and while he's a man of few words, he likes to sing... no matter what he's doing!  He works at Bell House in Greensboro.  It's a residence for people with physical disabilities. 

For two hours each day, Darden serves breakfast and lunch.  For four MORE hours, he volunteers!  That's right.  He gets paid for 10 hours and volunteers for 20 each week!

The residents all enjoy his company and agree he does a great job.  In fact, according to one of his supervisors, he is typically discussed at their monthly resident meetings.  They have only good things to say.

So the next time you think you just can't take your job any more, try singing!  It works for Anthony Darden!
