Volunteering at the West Valley Lutheran Thrift
We have over 350 volunteers who donate an average of 4 hours a week. The majority of them are members of various Lutheran churches in the northwest Valley. Many other Christian denominations are represented and are encouraged to join our work force. We work hard and the pay is in knowing that others have benefited from our labors.
Volunteers are expected to work at least a four hour shift preferably once a week. The shifts are broken into AM (8:00 am to noon) and PM (noon to 4 pm).
The four areas where volunteers work are described as:
- Processors – work in the back room pricing donated housewares, hardware, clothing, crafts, books, shoes, purses, and art.
- Floor Workers – shelve items, organize and display items, assist customers and cover our security needs.
- Cashiers – work in pairs at the front counter to check out customers’ purchases.
- Truckers – do the pick up and deliveries of furniture and other large items
Our Day Managers are all Volunteers who have worked at the Thrift for years in various roles. We have hired a full time Director to help us achieve more in the years ahead. Our Day Managers meet monthly to stay on top of operational challenges and improvements. In addition, we have a Board of elected volunteers who make the policy and budgetary decisions for the Thrift.
