A great way to have a meaningful and direct impact with the ongoing outreach programs at Providence Ministries is to volunteer at Providence Thrift Store. You will see first-hand how donations are transformed into dollars to help the poor and homeless in our community. We currently have opportunities to assist with our donation processing and help on the sales floor at various Providence Thrift Store locations. Individuals are welcome, and we are happy to work with organizations and church groups.
We want to make your volunteer time a great experience! If you are a group, or this is your first-time as an individual, you will be contacted with ‘need-to-know’ information about scheduling, best times, locations, and what to expect. (Please read our Volunteer FAQs for helpful information.)
