We are always in need of help. Do you like clothes, stuff, people and your community?  If so, please consider volunteering.

If you would like to volunteer, call the store at 985-3595 and someone will be in touch if our volunteer coordinator is not available. 

Volunteers are very important to the success of SCHIP's Treasure and a valuable partner to the management team The store and its warehouse are closely linked so volunteers work in both locations. At the store, volunteers welcome customers, help them find items, show them the dressing rooms, and put away clothing that has been tried on but not purchased. When there are no customers to help volunteers go through racks and shelves, straightening merchandise and making sure items are in the proper size and category place. They also help with other tasks such as steaming, ironing, sewing/mending, laundry, shoe cleaning and polishing, and more. At the warehouse, volunteers help in sorting and hanging clothing that has come from the store and assist in putting together clothing that is needed in the store.


Volunteers with specialized backgrounds in something we carry can also be helpful in several ways, including as an advisor on values.  For example, we have a jewelry specialist who identifies all of our jewelry and prepares it for sale and prices it under general guidance from the store manager.  Pricing is usually reserved to the store manager, but if we have available expertise, we are grateful for their added assistance.
