Job Story: Sophie Volunteers at the Thrift Store
Sophie has a job as a volunteer at a thrift store, for a half hour on Thursday mornings. She rides and works with her attendant, who is paid through a Medicaid Waiver Program. She found the job through networking with others. For her work, she needed to practice hanging and rearranging items. Things like hats, bags, shoes, and toys need restocking and rearranging. After greeting the staff, she usually checks in on an iPad and then finds places to be helpful. She likes to greet and help staff, customers, and other volunteers when she is at the store.
