Congratulations to Joseph on being hired as a Retail Clerk at STEP Thrift Stores! Joseph is accomplished at the technology in the stores and has trained multiple interns and staff over the years. He is a welcome addition as he transitions from supported employment to providing support and training to others.

It has been a tumultuous year for all of us this year, but the STEP Thrift Store team has weathered the storm incredibly well. Every day, staff makes sure all safety protocols are being adhered to so that they can continue to keep customers and employees safe in the stores. 

All purchases and donations at STEP Thrift Stores impact the lives of over 100 retail intern trainees receiving employment training and support every month at various store locations as well as over 1,400 other individuals receiving vocational and training services in Wayne County.
