Volunteer

You don't have to be a Superman or Wonder Woman to make an impact

Fact is that our volunteers range in age from 16 to 85 and do everything from customer service in the store to sorting and pricing donations in the warehouse. In 2014, our volunteers helped us process and sell over 4 million pounds of donated materials.

Please join us in our efforts to improve our community.  We need Volunteers to work in our stores as Customer Service Volunteers, and in our donation centers as Warehouse Volunteers.

For more information call our Volunteer Coordinator at 502.805.1417.

Warehouse/Donation Center:
Donors have been very kind to us and we need a lot of help processing and moving donated materials into the store.  No special skills required.

Helping customers with their purchases including measuring items, carrying items, and generally making customers feel welcome. Knowledge of building materials, furniture, or landscaping and gardening is helpful, but not required.

What will I be doing?
Tasks vary day to day, but will usually consist of general housekeeping (sweeping, cleaning up and organizing various departments, dusting, cleaning the break room and bathrooms, wiping the windows, etc.), sorting donations, pricing items, putting priced items on the floor, creating or breaking down displays, transporting large items to customers’ cars, etc.
