Volunteering at the Thrift Store

Volunteers generously donate their time and expertise to operate our thrift store. They perform a wide range of duties from receiving, sorting and pricing donations to setting up our retail displays to helping customers or being a cashier. We are constantly in search of volunteers and have a wide variety of opportunities available.

Volunteering is fun, interesting, and you get to work with some of the nicest people. No matter what job you do, you go home each day knowing you have made a difference in someone’s quality of life. If you have a special talent or just some time to spare, please give us a call. We would love to have you join our team!

Four-hour shifts are encouraged but any time is appreciated. Depending upon special needs or duties, hours may be flexible. Most volunteers work one shift per week.
