Client Shopping Assistant
Help facilitate the client shopping experience! Client Shopping Assistants serve in the front room of the center, greeting clients, finding items clients are looking for, restocking the front room, and folding selected items at checkout.
Sorting Incoming donations
It takes a strong team of volunteers to keep the center and donations organized. Sorting volunteers unpack donations, organize the clothing by size and style, and restock the racks and shelves.
Packing Client Orders
To continue serving over 1000 families each year, we must fill the clothing orders for those in need. Packing volunteers shop around the center for the items requested in the right style and size, and pack the orders for client pick up.
