If you are able and willing to adhere to high quality standards for the work, have a happy heart and respect for our clients, you are invited to work with us! Our volunteers clean, sort and process clothes, assist clients, and work in Friends Boutique. Generally, new volunteers come in for orientation on Monday or Thursday, and after their first shift are able to move to another volunteer shift, if desired.
If you would like to volunteer, please fill out our volunteer interest form.
We look forward to working with you!
Please find a list of our most common volunteer needs below:
Donated clothes must be examined, sorted, steamed, hung, and stored. Volunteers who work in the processing area are responsible for insuring quality and presenting the clothes in an attractive way. You would also be restocking the racks and baskets in the shopping area.
Monday and Thursday 10am-2pm, Tuesday and Wednesday 9am-3pm, Thursday 6pm-9pm
Our clients need help registering and selecting clothes. Volunteers use their basic computer skills to collect client data and service statistics; another volunteer acts as a store associate to help clients with clothes, bagging their selections, and retrieving linens upon request. Knowing Spanish is a big asset!
Tuesday and Wednesday 9am-3pm, Thursday 6pm-8pm
Friends Resale Boutique uses volunteers to price, prepare, and display items for sale. In the boutique, volunteers help customers and ring the sales.
