Backpacks in the Shark Tank

logo_homeSTEPS has been working with Jack DuFour and Alley Heffern on their Taaluma Totes project since inception. Please tune in to your local NBC affiliate at 9:00pm on Friday, February 20, 2015 to see how these amazing young people fair “in the tank!” Jack/Allie are not permitted to give us the outcome of their experience, but the exposure will be GREAT. These young people are quite impressive and are committed to helping STEPS rebuild the manufacturing base in Victoria for our entire workforce, but especially for our employees with disabilities!! Please feel free to share this exciting news with your family, friends and colleagues. And remember, every backpack you see on TV was made in our STEPS-Victoria plant!!
