Store goods are prepared from donations – nothing sells unless capably processed by competent hands. Those interested in applying to be a processing volunteer would involve themselves with the preparation to get donated clothes on the rack.
Interested in working in this area? Here are some comments from a volunteer who presently works in the receiving and sorting area . . .
“I like knowing that clothing and housewares are being re-used; knowing that items are being priced affordably; knowing that this is helping people to set-up their homes or to replace no-longer usable items at a reasonable cost; working with like-minded volunteers.” ~Sylvia
Volunteers will enjoy working alongside like-minded people and help earn proceeds that can help our community.
Our processing volunteers would be asked to prepare clothing and items for sale in the store, through the inspection and screening of items, pricing according to price guides, and washing dirty items (not clothes).
Volunteers will work in the basement sorting area in either the morning or afternoon shift.
Hours of sorting:
Tuesdays or Thursdays, 9am - noon and 1pm - 4pm.
Once trained, processing volunteers would work 2-4 times a month.
