Encore could not run without our faithful volunteers, and we are always looking for more! If you are interested in volunteering at Encore, please send an e-mail to our Store Director, Shaney Swift, at firstname.lastname@example.org, with the following information:
- Contact information
- Best time to contact you
- What days/times you’re interested in volunteering
- How frequently you’re looking to volunteer (weekly, monthly, once a season, etc.)
- Any special skills you’d like to use in the store, such as familiarity with high-end brands, sewing, jewelry repair, interior design/store layout, marketing, etc.
Current volunteer needs:
Daily store volunteers Our biggest need! Volunteers who come in weekly or every other week to help with basic store maintenance, including cleaning, keeping racks organized, sorting through donations, etc. No previous experience in retail needed! We will train you in all our store procedures.
Moving storage containers Volunteers to go with our store director weekly or every other week to load bins of clothing in and out of our storage unit on State Street. Transportation helpful but not required.
Store decoration Volunteers to come in monthly or seasonally and decorate the store to match the current season. A great volunteer opportunity for creative people!
Larger projects Volunteers to come in on an as-needed basis to help with larger store projects, such as preparing for a big sale or rearranging the store layout.
Miscellaneous Have a skill that you didn’t see on this list, but think will be helpful to Encore? Send us an e-mail! We’re always looking for more volunteers.
