July 5, 2011

CHINO, CA — Aaron Tolchin, a janitor serving the city, hopes to continue his employment for some time to come, according to the Contra Coast Times.

Tolchin, who has glaucoma and a mental disability, has been a janitor for the city of Chino for the past three years, a position made possible by the Lincoln Training Center, the article stated.

According to the article, Lincoln is a non-profit that trains the developmentally disabled and provides them with jobs.

While Lincoln''s three-year contract with the city ends this year, the company will continue to service the city on a month-to-month basis; however, come September, the city will consider bids from competing janitorial companies, the article noted.

"I''m asking you to think with your hearts, not just dollars," said Sindi Wasserman, a former teacher of two of Lincoln Training Center''s Chino janitors, on behalf of the company.

"This company has done a fantastic job for the city, and there are faces that go with the people," Wasserman added.
