We would like to introduce our new Donation Duo! Donation and Warehouse Coordinator, Terrance Long and Donation and Warehouse Associate, Coleman Macon.
Terrance was recommended to us by his brother, Guy Long who graduated Phase 1 of Mission: St. Louis’ JLT program in September and is now employed with his intern site, Anew Nature. Terrance was first hired as a part time driver with us but proved an invaluable asset to our shop and our team and was recently promoted to Donation and Warehouse Coordinator! Terrance is a regular jack of all trades and is often the first person we turn to when confronted with a problem within the shop. His willingness to go above and beyond is one of his strongest qualities, and his consistent positive energy and smile help lift the spirits of everyone around him, both coworkers and customers.
Coleman is the newest addition to our little family. Coleman interned with us for 8 weeks through the JLT program with Mission: St. Louis and was by far our strongest intern. Coming in on his days off to volunteer to help Terrance with pick-ups and deliveries really showed everyone how committed he was to the JLT program and to Revive. Coleman graduated from Phase 1 of the JLT program this month and was hired on as our Donation and Warehouse Associate immediately. He also possesses that willingness to help in any way he can, coming in early or helping with tasks that are a little outside of his job description. If he sees something that needs to be done he often helps without even being asked, and he never complains. He is a consistent source of happiness and smiles around Revive.
Terrance and Coleman have gotten our donation system down to a science with the initial supervision of our newly promoted Revive Thrift Shop Manager, Danielle Maclin. Knowing they are both on the job alleviates our workload because we know that anything they are involved with will be done efficiently and professionally. We are truly thankful during this holiday season that we found both of these amazing guys to complete our staff.
If you see either men around Revive or out picking up donations or delivering furniture give them a friendly wave and a congratulations on their promotions!
