Volunteer Information

We want your time and talents!

There's always something to do as a volunteer at Uncommon Threads and Uncommon Closet! We are so grateful for the help and love we get from our volunteers!

Following are the volunteer opportunities we offer. See below for the volunteer sign-up form and answers to frequently asked questions.

THREADS TO GO STYLISTS

Our stylists use a personalized style profile to select clothing and accessories that reflect the client’s needs and preferences. Stylists package clothing in a reusable Uncommon Threads tote bag and include personal messages of support and encouragement. There is some training for this role which we provide. Knowledge and interest in current fashions is a plus!

DONATION SORTING

Inventory Coordinators sort, size, and display donated clothing and accessories. They also  organize and run our client clothing sales. Knowledge and interest in current fashion is a plus! 

UNCOMMON CLOSET SALES 

The purpose of Uncommon Closet is to generate funds to support the services we offer at Uncommon Threads. Sales Associates assist customers with selecting clothes and accessories and putting outfits together. They also assist the store manager with merchandising and pricing. Training, including use of Square, our point-of-sale app, is provided. Experience in retail, especially fashion, is preferred.

IN-PERSON BOUTIQUE STYLIST

(when we are able to reopen for clients)

The boutique provides high-quality clothing and styling services to low-income women who are in need of clothing for special events, interviewing, jobs, or just simply day-to-day living. As a stylist, you will work one-on-one with a client during a 90-minute session to select clothes that work for her needs and her personal style. In addition to selecting and coordinating clothes, shoes and accessories, you will have the opportunity to support and encourage the client so she leaves feeling greater self-esteem and confidence.
