Front of Store: Sales
Volunteers in the front of the store are the first faces customers see when entering the Family Thrift Store! This role includes engaging with customers, ringing up sales, and sparkling the sales floor. Please keep in mind that you will need to be comfortable being on your feet for a number of hours. This volunteer position is great for sociable, kind, welcoming individuals who are passionate about helping our customers have the best experience!
Back of Store: Donation Processing
Volunteers placed at the back of the store primarily deal with receiving and sorting donations as they are collected. You get to be the face thanking our generous donors who drop off items for the store, and help us ensure the items going out on the floor look their best! This role includes receiving donations as they come in, sorting and pricing, then placing items on the sales floor. An eye for organization and the ability to lift larger donated items are a plus in this role.
Special Volunteer Needs
On occasion, we will have need for volunteers with special skills, including carpentry, design or even driving our donation truck, Phil the Truck! If you have a special skill you’d like to contribute to the Family Thrift Store, please let us know.
