Greeneville, TN – This Spring, TEVET is cleaning out their closets and basements to donate to the newly created SteppenStyle Thrift Store for the SteppenStone Youth Treatment Services organization. SteppenStone is an organization that TEVET supports for at-risk youth. Within a HUBZone that has high unemployment and other economic struggles, organizations and support for organizations like this are critical to our youth and community. The thrift store is a new outreach that the organization created to connect the youth, who work the thrift store and gain business skills, to the community.

Throughout the Spring, TEVET has been able to collect clothes, toys, furniture, bikes, games, and so much more for the store and organization. Car loads upon car loads have been delivered by TEVET employees, individually and collectively.  For everyone local, we hope you will think of SteppenStone during spring cleaning!

If you wish to learn more about what Steppenstone and the thrift store need, please see the list below:

  • twin bedding
  • extra sheets
  • blankets
  • towels
  • washcloths
  • lightly-worn clothing – not gender or size specific
  • shoes
  • toys
  • furniture

And if our Spring cleaning, which was going to happen anyways, goes toward a great cause, then might as well step up and step on in.
