People & Places with Pierce: Augusta Training Shop Extended Preview

One Augusta group offers their customers something truly unique.

Audrey Murell, executive director of the Augusta Training Shop, explains: “Most of the work that we do here, you can’t find it anywhere else. These employees can come in with zero skills and we show them everything to do.”

John West, a volunteer at the Augusta Training Shop adds: “I love this place because it provides them an opportunity to get out and really have a purpose and meaning in their lives. The way I Iook at the training shop is it’s a family.”

“If a person walks in the door, that can give up to three people a job,” said Murell.
