“Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they have the heart.”

We strive to be a nearly 100% volunteer run organization. And we make sure to spoil our volunteers!

Make a difference today!

Volunteer Opportunities

 

 Volunteers can help in a variety of ways in our thrift store including:
 

  • Greeter
    Make someone's day by welcoming them in, showing them our discount wheel and letting them know how their dollars are being used to help local seniors - one of our most important positions!

     

  • Cashier
    This is another vital volunteer role.  As a cashier, you have the opportunity to make a wonderful lasting impression on our customers while you offer a free reusable tote for signing up on our VIP email list, explain the benefits of rounding up their purchase and explain how the giving wall works.

     

  • Bagger
    Volunteer baggers help the cashier by wrapping and folding items into our bags

     

  • Retail  Assistant
    Our retail assistants keep our retail floor looking neat and tidy by straightening up clothing racks, shelf items, dressing rooms and restocking shelves.

     

  • Receiving Donations
    We rely entirely on donated items - they are a precious as gold! We need volunteers with friendly dispositions and strong backs to help receive donated goods.

     

  • Donation Sorter
    Our sorters help keep our backroom neat and efficient. This role requires a discerning eye to spot the hidden gems, the vintage, and luxury items to be sold online.

     

  • eCommerce
    This is an entire division of the store where we photograph, post and sell items online both locally and nationally.

     

  • Pricing and Tagging Items
    This volunteer tags the items and determines their price - a critical role at the thrift store.

     

  • Cleaning
    Although everyone participates in keeping our stores neat and clean, this volunteer will sweep, mop, dust, sanitize, and clean as needed.

     

  • Special Events
    Love to plan parties and events? We need you!  We are always looking for new and fun ways to raise money and to give back to the community.


     

  • Volunteer Coordinator
    The volunteer coordinator is responsible for managing all elements of volunteering.  They source and recruit volunteers, arrange for training, assign responsibilities and manage schedules.

       Volunteers can also help in our office:

  • Administrative / Office Assistant - Help our executive director, program director, and store operations manager with office duties.  This volunteer role will include helping to enter data, organizing files, sending out mailing and thank you letters and other duties as assigned.
