Thrift Store: any Mon thru Sat, anytime between 9am-5pm


Event Description:

Thank you for volunteering with The Salvation Army Thrift Store. Our store sells used goods providing budget friendly shopping and helping to recycle goods. The proceeds help support our programs & services which help people in crisis to rebuild their lives. In addition, items at our thrift store are often given away free of charge to those we are helping to rehouse after homelessness, recovering from a disaster or to families or individuals who are living in poverty or are homeless and need clothing and/or basic household supplies. 

Thrift Store Volunteers: 

  • Volunteers must be 16 or older, with an adult over age 18 (unless previous arrangements have been made).
  • Tasks may include sorting and unpacking items in the back room, helping organize on the floor, unloading donations from cars as they pull up outside, or general tasks like cleaning/dusting, etc.  
  • Please wear closed shoes or sneakers. Please no athletic wear (sweats, leggings, etc.) and shorts should be knee length.
  • Please give at least 2 hours on any date that you volunteer.
  • Upon arrival, please check in with the cashier who will direct you to a manager and tasks.
  • PLEASE SIGN-IN and SIGN-OUT every time. We are required to report volunteer hours as part of our funding and grants, so your help is appreciated.  
  • If you are part of a GROUP of 6 or more, please call to schedule volunteering.
  • If you are needing 'court-ordered' community service, you must contact Danielle Smith at our office before showing up, to discuss the requirements and documentation needed. 
  • While we welcome you to shop after your shift, please don’t shop from the back-room items until they are placed on the sales floor. Volunteers receive 10% off (or the higher sale discount on that date).
