  • 12 people are interested

Discovery Shop locations aren’t your typical thrift or resale shops. High quality, gently-used, and new merchandise, including collectible and vintage items, are donated by the community then curated and sold in our upscale stores. Purchases, donations of goods, and volunteers help the American Cancer Society make the biggest impact on cancer ever. Discover the difference by visiting your nearest shop!

Volunteers are needed to assist with the running of ACS stores. Duties include customer service, sorting, pricing, cashiering, sales, social media, visual merchandising and being awesome along with the rest of our team. There is always something to discover as well as something to do at the Discovery Shop. Come share your passions, learn new skills, meet new people- all while supporting an incredible cause!

We are open TUE-SAT, 10a-5p. 4 hour scheduled shifts preferred but flexible!
