Sacks Thrift Volunteer Information
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. We have plenty of jobs available from sorting through valuable treasures, cleaning and organizing the ever growing pile of clothes, to meeting and greeting customers, or working the register. We have plenty of different departments to meet any skills you have that would contribute to the Sacks stores (and ultimately the Help Center and the Sexual Assault Counseling Center).
Volunteer eight hours a month and each month you will receive a 50% discount card. There are different types of time commitments when volunteering. Most volunteers have a set schedule each month within the stores, but some volunteers work on special projects and thus can make their own hours.
Sacks also hosts special long-term service projects for the Community Partners program through MSU. The Community Partners service projects are open to anyone 17 or older (whether enrolled in college or not) and, at Sacks, range in focus from working with at-risk youth to developing a comprehensive recycling program for the Sacks stores.
