The Augusta Training Shop Featured On ABC’s Made In America

I’ve always loved the Made In America feature on ABC News. If you aren’t familiar with the series, news anchor David Muir focuses on families and businesses helping to create jobs to America. This week he has been focusing on the Christmas shopping season and the positive impact it’s having on the economy and local businesses.

On Wednesday night, Augusta was in the spotlight. It was a great story that included The Augusta Training Shop, which provides a productive and creative workplace for adults with disabilities.

Audrey Murell. the executive director recently talked with our news partner, News Channel 6 WJBF.

“It’s my goal to make sure that these folks have work at their hands each and every day,” said executive director Audrey Murell. “And, if they don’t, then we’ve failed them. And that sits with me everyday, 24-7, all the time. I know that I can go out and get another job. But these folks depend on us. And this is their home. We’re like family, and we want to remain that.”
