VOLUNTEER AT THE THRIFT SHOP!
Various volunteer roles are needed:
1. Frontline is your finesse. Mingling and rapport is your prowess. Cashier/Retail roles are available!
2. Behind the scenes is your fortitude. Unloading, sorting, cleaning, organizing and set up is your solace. Positions are available!
If you’re looking for flexible opportunities to suit your availability, apply to help with the following short shifts and tasks:
Daily Short Shifts from 1pm to 3pm to bridge the morning and afternoon volunteer shifts and add an additional helping hand in the heart of the day.
Morning & Afternoon Runners from 10am to noon and 1pm to 3pm to receive donations and be the runner from the upper to lower levels and vice versa. What a great way to get your steps in for the day – just put on your running shoes!
Special Projects – We have a number of tasks that do not require a set schedule, and in some cases do not need to be done at the shop, such as:
- Stuffies – Name tags, naming & pricing
- Kids Toys – Grouping small items in baggies & pricing
- Linens – Assessing, cleaning, sorting, folding & pricing
- Upstairs Pricing – selective categories of donations that could be researched and priced on the upper level (i.e. Seasonal décor, glassware, small appliances, etc.)
- Polishing silver
- Dusting & Cleaning
- Others, depending on need
