The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Mercer Island Thrift Shop (MITS) is seeking volunteers to become a regular part of our cashier team with a commitment of one shift per week. MITS is a nonprofit business that values a culture of community involvement, volunteer skills development, and reducing our community footprint on the planet through resale; the best form of recycling. As a bustling group of 65 volunteers, management team and work study students, we are proud that we provide the major source of funding for the City of Mercer Island’s department of Youth & Family Services (MIYFS).
Shifts are as follows Monday through Saturday:
9:45 a.m. to 1:15 p.m.
2:45 p.m. to 4:15 p.m.
3:45 p.m. to 7:15 p.m.
Sundays: 11:45 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (hours are flexible, can split shift)
We provide full training on a modern P.O.S. system and a cashier training handbook you get to keep. You can use our online app to schedule your shifts and time away or we can manage your specified times for you. MITS is a fun, fast paced environment with a diverse work force from youth to seniors. Volunteer benefits include progressive discounts for the number of hours you work, job training, work references, volunteer recognition events, free coffee, tea, soda and a snack bar.
