Morning and Afternoon Volunteers Shifts

Specific Volunteer Needs:

Cashiering Volunteers

Get your smile and small talk ready and help us with customer service behind the counter! We need some multitaskers to help us with cashiering, answering the phone, checking voicemail, and small projects as needed. Training and continued support will be provided. This is a great opportunity to engage with the community and get to know our wonderful regulars.

Clothing Processing Volunteers

Calling all detail-oriented people! We are looking for 2-4 Volunteers to help us spot the stains, rips and wear on clothing before it hits the sales floor. This is a critical role as the more clothing we churn out, the more revenue is generated to support senior services. Plus, it is a lot of fun seeing all the great, fun and odd donations that come through the warehouse. Once clothing is processed, these individuals will price, stock and organize the items on the sales floor. The shifts are for 3 - 4 hour shifts. With AM and PM shifts available from Monday-Friday (Note: we can be flexible on scheduling). This role would involve occasionally lifting up to 30 lbs. (bags of clothing can be heavy!). and standing. This role could help in other areas if interested (cashiering, answering phone, customer service).

Durable Medical Volunteer
It is broke, but we can fix it- with your help! We need one or two volunteers to work with and repair durable medical equipment by swapping out broken components with good pieces. This would also require being trained on how to use our Hub Scrub machine which cleans and sanitizes all equipment prior to working with it. Putting together the clean equipment; learn the pricing of equipment; repairing equipment along with organizing and harvesting spare parts to be used to fix equipment, help us get more affordable medical equipment into the hands of our community. This opportunity requires one-to-two days a week, three-to-four-hour shifts. This would involve lifting and standing. (Hint, this is a great opportunity for two friends to tinker and talk while volunteering)
