Position Responsibilities

Assist with maintaining new rules for admission to wearhouse. 8 clients may be in the wearhouse at one time. They may shop for about 20 minutes. When one client leaves another may enter. If needed, enter individuals’ information in the request binder if the item they are looking for is not currently available. We only take requests for bigger items as it would be too hard to track everything that may come in Keep the shelves and racks looking neat and organized throughout the day. As needed take empty hangers back to the sorting area and hang up.

Volunteer Benefits

Allowing people to have a safe shopping experience is important. When our small space becomes crowded it makes people feel overwhelmed and unable to locate things they are looking for.
