Do you have a flair for fashion? Share your creative talents and retail "know-how" to help us empower communities and change lives.

ThriftWORKS, a social enterprise of the Urban League of Essex County, turns donated items into second chances for individuals striving to better their lives. The proceeds from our thrift store go to support badly needed programs for children, seniors and opportunity youth from low-income and disadvantaged backgrounds.

We're looking for volunteers to help make our thrift store boutiques a success. If you've got retail experience, or are interested in the retail and fashion industry, this is a great opportunity for you!
Flexible hours are available, fun environment, and of course, we will train you in everything you need to know about ThriftWORKS. There are many ways you can help, including:

Creating creative window and store displays

Customer Service

Stocking shelves / racks

Helping with donation pickups

Loading / unloading donation trucks

Pricing inventory

Sales floor / Store clerk


Online sales platform content

Social media/blogging

Organizing the boutique and warehouse
