Would You Like to Volunteer?
Donated clothes must be examined, sorted, steamed, hung, and stored. Volunteers who work in the processing area are responsible for ensuring quality and presenting the clothes in an attractive way. You would also be restocking the racks and baskets in the shopping area. The commitment is 3 or 4 hours a week.*
Our clients need help registering and selecting clothes. Volunteers use their computer skills to collect basic 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! This may be the most challenging (but also the most rewarding) position available. The commitment is 3 or 4 hours a week.*
* Tuesday and Wednesday 9am to 12pm, 12pm to 3pm, Thursday 6pm to 8pm
Friends Resale Boutique uses volunteers to price, prepare, and display items for sale. In the boutique, volunteers help customers and ring the sales. All proceeds benefit Clothes Cabin and this revenue is an important part of the agency! The basic commitment is 2 to 4 hours a week.**
** Tuesdays – Saturday 10am to 2pm.
Computer and Office Support
Volunteers can help with data entry, filing and basic administrative tasks.
Volunteers help those activities that are with fundraisers, event management, marketing, seasonal sorting and large donation processing.
