Serve

Our volunteers, referred to as serve staff, play a vital role in creating our dignified setting. We partner with non-profits in our city to provide for the physical needs of their clients as well as provide a place for the community to donate and buy goods at affordable prices.

Serve staff are needed Monday-Saturday between the hours of 9am-6pm to help process and sort donations, tag and shelve merchandise, straighten up the store and provide welcoming service to our community. If you're looking for a volunteer opportunity that is fun, has flexible volunteer hours and benefits a great cause, this opportunity is for you!
