Ornstein recognized for achievements

Special to Long Beach Breeze


Todd Ornstein

Todd Ornstein was recently recognized for his achievements by the Mississippi Department of Mental Health. Ornstein has been employed with the McDonald’s Descher Organization in Gulfport for almost twenty years.


Ornstein works the lunch rush, 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., six days each week. He is responsible for cleaning the lobby, restrooms and parking lot, as well as stocking the drink station.


Due to the pandemic, McDonald’s drive-through has become very busy, so Ornstein now runs take-out orders to cars.


“I am excited to share my story, because I love my job, and I am proud that I have worked so long.”


Ornstein is described by his supervisor as being a hard worker, and his outgoing personality makes meeting new people and making friends easy for him. Recently, Ornstein achieved one of his life’s goals of moving from a group home into his own apartment, allowing him even greater independence. He receives supported employment and job maintenance, through Disability Connection.
