Hugs + Mugs is a café and retail store run by our GiGi U graduates, now referred to as “Interns” along with our support staff. Each intern will manage different aspects of a real-life retail environment.
Today we want to introduce you to Catie one of our Rockstar Hugs + Mugs Interns!
Hi my name is Catie and I am 23 years old. I am an intern for Hugs + Mugs. I like to clean, help all my friends in the playhouse, and always love to work with people here for field trips and birthday parties. I am a happy person!
One of my favorite things in Hugs + Mugs is that I love learning is how to cut the designability paper and how to make mugs. My ultimate favorite thing though is working with all my friends!
I am #generationG because I like to inspire, believe, trust, and make everyone happy!
Be Generous, Be Accepting, and Be Kind…that is me!
Every visit to Hugs & Mugs, every purchase made on our online store gives the interns of Hugs & Mugs hands on skill training that helps them build their resumes. All profits go directly back into training opportunities. When you shop Hugs & Mugs you are making a difference in the lives of hard-working individuals with Down syndrome. Thank you!
