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.
TCV Thrift Store is a place where community members can shop for quality clothing and furniture at a great price! We also offer emergency clothing assistance and some household items. Our thrift store items are donated by the community and all the revenue goes back into our food bank, so we can help end hunger.
We are looking for volunteers with a positive attitude who enjoy retail and interacting with a diverse population. Thrift store volunteers assist by sorting and pricing donations, helping keep the store organized, and providing excellent customer service. Not only can you use this opportunity to interact with those in your community, but you will also experience the positive changes volunteering makes.
Our Thriftstore is open Monday-Thursday from 8:30am-4pm and Friday from 8:30am-3pm.
Volunteer Orientation: Come join and start making a difference right away! Our Volunteer Orientations are hosted every Wednesday at 10am and Thursday at 1pm. Orientation is only 30-40 minutes long.
Age Requirements: Minors must have parental consent to work at the food bank. Those under 16 must also be accompanied by a parent/chaperone at all times.

Setting a Volunteer Shift: Our shifts are flexible and we work with your schedule! Volunteers are welcome to immediately volunteer with TCV following orientation.
