Volunteers are needed in our Family Stores - thrift stores that support our Center of Hope program, a residential shelter for men, women and children. Volunteers will create an atmosphere that is inviting and welcoming by continually surveying the premises and correcting any issues. Anything from picking up items off the floor and straightening out displays to cleaning and dusting - and smiling at customers, of course. Sorting donations and attaching price tags to the merchandise may also be assignments. You may even have the opportunity to work alongside one of our guests in the program and be a positive influence for that shift.
