Giant Steps provide employment training and opportunities to our Community Integration program participants through the Snack Attack Vending Services and The Walk In Closet thrift store. These are businesses that we have developed for our clients.
Snack Attack is a food and beverage vending business providing services to companies in the Los Angeles area. It was developed to give our participants an opportunity to learn vocational skills. Our participants service and maintain the machines, shop for products, solicit business, collect profits, take inventory and maintain client relations. All profits from the business goes toward paying our participants. For more information about Snack Attack or if you are interested in placing a vending machine at your place of business, please call (323) 730-5500.
Other participants in our Community Integration program also have the opportunity to learn vocational skills by working at The Walk In Closet thrift store in Inglewood, CA. They learn retail sales, packaging skills and customer service. The store provides pick up services for those who would like to donate clothes. The Walk In Closet in turn donates many of the clothing to other nonprofit agencies and recycles unusable clothing to textile companies who will then turn them into usable products. They also sell clothing online to buyers throughout the country. For more information about The Walk In Closet, please visit their website at www.thewalkincloset.org or call (310) 412-1234.
