We need help with our warehouse inventory! Meet donors/donations at the dock door, taking in household goods and furniture. Load trucks for our delivery team. Unload trucks as they return from residential and corporate pickups. Help us restock the shelves after shopping has been completed. Be prepared for a workout, get your steps in, and lift stuff (both light and heavy)!
Shifts are in 3 hour increments available Monday through Thursday from 9:00am to Noon, 12:00pm to 3:00pm and 3:00pm to 6:00pm and Friday through Saturday from 9:00am to Noon and 12:00pm to 3:00pm.
We ask that you first come in for a tour of our warehouse so that you can get a scope of what we do. Tours last 20 to 30 minutes.
Volunteers must be 14 years of age or older. Masks are required (provided or bring your own) inside our building.
