NAMI Gulf Coast’s Second Chance Thrift Shop is a hidden gem in Alvin, TX. Unlike your typical thrift shop, every cent from items purchased goes back into the community to help individuals and families impacted by mental illness in the Galveston and Brazoria counties.

Thrift shop volunteers help process community donated items by sorting, tagging, pricing and putting them on the sales floor. Volunteers also help create displays, maintain the cleanliness of the store, and greet customers. This is a great way to gain general employment or retail experience as well as a great opportunity for individuals and groups looking to make a difference in their community!

This opportunity also qualifies for individual and group community service and service learning hours. Retail experience is helpful but not necessary. We’ll provide the training! Bilingual (Spanish speaking) individuals are strongly encouraged to apply for this volunteer opportunity!
