Volunteers Needed!

It’s crunch time! We need volunteers to work at our thrift store!! We are hoping to open in the next few weeks. We finally have everything laid out and enough fixtures to get us going; now we just need some folks to run it. Even if you can only work a couple of days a month, that would be great.
Retail or cash handling is preferred, but we are willing to train the right people. The ideal candidate would be someone who is retired, unemployed or works part time. There will be two volunteers working per shift. This is a non-paying job BUT volunteering looks great on a resume. Ringing up sales will be easy as everything will be even numbers (.50 cents, $1.00, $2.00 etc) and there will be no sales tax. You will need to learn the register and credit card machine (it’s easy).
In the beginning (until we get more volunteers) hours will be:
Thurs- Fri, 11 am till 5 pm
Sat, 10 am – 3 pm
Responsibilities will include:
Customer service
Ringing up sales
Cleaning and organizing
Sorting and pricing donations
We will provide: bottled water, snacks, and coffee. We have a mini-fridge and will be getting a microwave soon. We also, have a nice patio outside (in the back) which we are hoping to get some tables and chairs out there for breaks.
Thrift store volunteers will get first choice of in-coming merchandise and a substantial discount on items!
If you have already applied, please confirm you are still interested.
If you are interested in volunteering, please send us a private message, email or call 314-723-6127.
