Volunteering

Join us!

You may only be one person, but be one person who makes a difference by volunteering with us!

So many different people, so many different stories… You may be someone who’s always given their time to different causes… you may be a high school student looking for volunteer hours and experience for a resume… you may be a person who works full-time, has a family and only has a few hours a month to spare. Wherever you are on your volunteer path, we’re here to help.

Volunteer Application Form

New applications are always accepted.  We’re looking for general help throughout the shop and require special individuals for the following positions:

Receivers

We are looking for friendly folks to accept donations from donors with a smile, offer a sincere thank you, and perform initial sort. We have openings for Thursday afternoons. Students welcome! This is a busy position requiring the ability to lift items up to 30 lbs. Join us and see the wide variety of things that arrive each day!

Cashiers

Are you friendly and enjoy meeting new people? No experience necessary – all training provided. Shifts available Tuesday mornings, Wednesday mornings, Friday evenings and Saturdays all day. Students are welcome! We are also looking for people who might not want a regular weekly shift but would be willing to be added to our relief list to be called in as needed.volunteer1

Can you tell if a knick-knack is knicked? We need lots of help to sort and price the high volume of housewares donations. Opening on Friday mornings.

Housewares support

Wednesday and Thursday afternoons we are looking for someone to help tidy up and display priced housewares in the store.
