Sacks of Thrift

Sorting through valuable treasures, cleaning, and organizing the ever growing pile of clothes, to meeting and greeting customers, or working the register.

 

Service Saturday volunteers play a critical role in helping the stores keep operating costs down, which translates into more funding available for the Help Center and the Sexual Assault Counseling Center. In this way your valuable service not only benefits the Sacks stores, but the entire community as well.

Assisting with all aspects of their condom distribution program (stickering, counting, etc). Sometimes volunteers also help with bulk mailing and other clinic projects. Snacks provided!!!

Habitat for Humanity
