Arc Value Village
In the back room of Arc’s Value Village in St. Paul where donated goods are prepared for the retail floor, you will find Diane Blashill hard at work sorting and price-tagging merchandise. A proud Value Village employee for more than many years, Diane has worked in a number of jobs, but prefers to work behind the scenes.
Diane is well-liked among her co-workers and managers who communicate with her by writing notes and using some basic American Sign Language (ASL) signs and finger spelling they have learned. “They are very friendly and nice; we tease each other and have fun while we work.”
