Thrift Store Volunteering

This group made breakfast one Sunday a month for 12 years.

Many volunteers are needed in order to make the organization and distribution of hampers a success. Volunteers are needed to help fill the hamper boxes, and to deliver the hampers at the appropriate time.  These activities will be happening in mid-December.  When the date is set it will be posted here.

Volunteers are needed to help with the Easter, Thanksgiving, & Christmas Dinners  --  setting up, serving, and cleaning up.  Current information will be posted here and advertised as we near the dates for the dinners.   Please check the Bulletin Board BLOG nearer to the dates for information about how and where to volunteer.

Volunteering at the store involves sorting and pricing items, cleaning, merchandising, assisting customers, and some sales opportunities.  Sorting Nights are held the 2nd and 4th Wednesday’s of each month.


The Store is a great, friendly, and fun place to volunteer and we’re always accepting new helpers.   Any amount of time that you can offer is appreciated.
