Stefano is one of our ReStore receiving clerks, meaning he sees nearly every single donation that passes through the ReStore doors.
“I take in all the donations and put everything out on the floor once it’s priced,” he said. This is a fast-paced part of the ReStore process that is absolutely necessary for the store to function.
After a little over 7 months of working at the ReStore, Stefano has found that his favorite area of the store is the receiving dock, where he spends most of his time. He said he enjoys seeing the variety of unique items that are donated to the store.
“There’s no telling any given day what we’ll get in here,” he said. “It’s pretty exciting most days.”
Another aspect of working at the ReStore that Stefano enjoys is getting to interact with customers.
“I like the fact that I have my regular customers that I talk to on a daily basis,” he said.
Outside of working at the ReStore, Stefano loves spending time with his 9-year-old son and 1-year-old daughter. He also enjoys reading “a little bit of everything”. When asked if he has fun facts about himself, Stefano shared that he was born with an extra finger on each hand— we don’t know about you, but that’s one of the best fun facts we’ve ever heard!
We are extremely grateful for Stefano and the ReStore teammate that he is. Without his hard work at the receiving dock, we couldn’t do what we do.
