We offer a range of rewarding possibilities to our volunteers. You can serve as an individual or lead a group of co-workers or another group.  A youth group from church, a Girl or Boy scout troupe, High School kids wanting to work hours for volunteering. Helping hands is what makes this organization work.

The chapter in our neighborhood is always looking for fresh faces, new ideas, new hands, and new hearts to provide assistance to our neighbors and friends. Utilize your experience gained to assist others. As you go you may gain some new skills too.

Our greatest strength is our volunteers. Sharing your time and your skills can change lives forever. All you need to become a volunteer at our Thrift Shop is a genuine concern to help our neighbors in need, and the willingness to do something about it while preserving total confidentially.
