Tommy works at Romano's Pizza in Salem, and anyone who lives in town knows they make the best pizza and subs. Tommy's job responsibilities include making pizza boxes and making sure the front counter is completely stocked and ready with boxes for the start of the day. He also prepares the containers for French fries, as well as breaks down all other boxes for the dumpster.
Tommy enjoys working and earning a paycheck, then going to the bank and cashing it to buy his movies. His self-esteem has soared since he started working at Romano's and he likes being part of the community. Tommy's co-workers have become his friends.
In addition to his job at Romano's, Tommy is also very involved in his community, enjoying his volunteer positions of three years at the Salem Boys' and Girls' Club. He volunteers there 5 days a week, up to 3 hours per day, as an assistant basketball coach. The new director really enjoys having Tom there and considers him to be part of the family. He is also a member of an official bowling league.
