The doors at Impact Thrift Stores and at our Donations Processing Center are OPEN to welcome those who wish to volunteer. Our volunteers, from tweens to eighty-somethings, are finding interesting tasks, new friends and meaningful community involvement when they visit each week.
Brian, who just turned thirteen, volunteers with his Mom… inspecting and sorting donations of knickknacks, testing small battery operated decorations and novelty goods, or pricing books for sale when he is not busy attending school or playing soccer. Sometimes, he even brings his sister along!
Warren, retired only a week, is sharing his professional expertise with executives and staff as he volunteers several times each week. His gifts of time and talents improve Impact Thrift in many ways while saving consulting fees that might reduce our bottom line and the checks going to charities every month.
Lori is so happy that a family member could complete mandatory community service at Impact Thrift that she comes to our Donation Processing Center in Montgomeryville and volunteers herself whenever she can, helping in accessories to price purses, in electronics to test lamps and in domestics sorting everything from doilies to quilts.
Many students attending college in our area, some familiar with Bucks and Montgomery Counties, others from distant states, volunteer regularly at Impact Thrift’s Donation Processing Center. “It feels good to be connected to the wider community and to know we’re helping a non-profit that provides financial and material assistance to so many people in need through the supported charities.” Younger students enthusiastically join our staff, performing many tasks that are essential to keeping goods flowing into our four stores. Their follow-up surveys indicated: “The staff members are so sweet. I feel uplifted after spending time at Impact Thrift.” “Everyone at Impact Thrift gave me such hope, that a business can do so much good for so many people in so many ways.” YOUR volunteer commitment helps hundreds of your neighbors in need.
You will contribute to more than a dozen worthwhile missions WITHOUT opening your checkbook when you donate goods or become a VOLUNTEER at Impact Thrift. Our enterprise positively impacts local communities through our thrift store operations. Thanks to our giving community, Impact Thrift financially supports and/or works cooperatively with a variety of local charities who support others in crisis. In the past ten years, Impact Thrift has donated more than $1.7 million to area non-profit agencies.
Your gift of volunteer time can help you join our wide community of wonderful individuals and groups who are “giving back.” You can gain valuable job skills, make friends and new contacts while furthering our mission to help more than 16 area charities. We have such a large variety of volunteer tasks, you will always learn something new, feel productive and involved in our community, enjoy flexible hours and our special “Volunteer Shoppers Discount.”
