Spruced up thrift shop

The Spruced Up Thrift Store is looking for a volunteer who can help cashier on an “on-call” basis to fill in for current volunteers who are out on vacation.  The shifts are normally either 10-1 or 1-4.  We are using the Square system and it’s very user-friendly and we’ll gladly train you.  We’re open MTWTh so the days we need help will vary. We also need a volunteer who would like to work in the back workroom helping prepare items to go on the sales floor. This includes checking to see if electrical items work, gluing broken items, polishing or washing dusty items, etc. We prefer someone who can work Thursdays but will try to work around your schedule. Please contact Jeanette Eldevik at 425-923-5309 or Cindy Hartley at 360-303-8536. Follow our Facebook Page to get important updates about events and sales!
