Last year, Tennesee-resident Lashenda Williams was homeless. She was sleeping overnight in her car in the parking lot of Kroger’s grocery store. A manager noticed Williams’s situation and encouraged her to attend the store’s job fair. Williams filled out an application, and the manager hired her. This turn of events changed her life, and she is no longer homeless.
Jackie Vandal is a hiring manager at a Kroger grocery store in Nashville, Tennessee, as USA Today reports. She noticed Lashenda Williams had been sleeping in the store parking lot for a year.
Williams reminisces about leaning her seat all the way back so no one would see her. She was not supposed to be sleeping in the parking lot.
