Griffin has been working at TJ Maxx, Amherst Street, Nashua, for 2 1/2 years. The store manager, Judy Bevis, remembers when Griffin started. “He was extremely shy at first and wouldn’t speak to others. Now, he greets most all associates and shows his wonderful sense of humor by sharing his latest joke. Griffin tells the backroom coordinator that ‘He’s the Boss!’.”
With the support of a Direct Support Professional, Griffin works at TJ Maxx for 4 hours a week. Some of the tasks he performs include unpacking clothes, preparing the clothes and putting them on hangers.
“Griffin has an optimistic attitude and everyone wants to help him”, adds Judy.
