We depend largely on volunteer efforts to keep our organization thriving and we would like to invite you to be part of our story.

We are looking for volunteers to help in the store, unpack shipments and help out at off site sales at churches and schools. You can choose your hours and days to suit your life style. If you can commit to 20 volunteer hours a month you get 20% off any full priced items you buy in the store. Our way of saying thank you.
