Inmates Assist Staff at Rapid City Club for Boys Thrift Store

The Rapid City Club for Boys has developed a partnership with the SD Department of Corrections to hire several inmates to work in the club’s thrift store, reports KOTA News. The inmates earn 25 cents per hour and some work as many as 40 hours per week in the store.

While the inmates come from all over South Dakota, many are from the Black Hills region. They perform a variety of tasks in the thrift store. Club for Boys Executive Director Doug Herrmann indicated that the work of the inmates has helped reduce the number of items accumulating in the thrift store’s storage area.
