CASA Thrift Shoppe [PIN]

CASA Collections Thrift Shoppe is one of the most vital programs that we have here at CASA -- when you support CASA Collections Thrift Shoppe, 100% of the proceeds are used to fund CASA's programs and services for survivors of domestic violence. By volunteering at the Thrift Shoppe, you are contributing to this life-saving work. The Thrift Shoppe is a fast-paced volunteer opportunity, as we are always busy and there is always something to be done! At the Thrift Shoppe, you will be assigned duties like helping shoppers find merchandise or sort and price donated items like clothing. You will also be tasked with accepting donations at our drop off area, which includes greeting donors, asking them to fill out a donation receipt, then bringing their donations into the back room. This involves heavy lifting, frequent standing and walk, and a lot of bending and moving. We hope you will join our team!
