Frequently Asked Questions about Volunteering

Where do I park?

There is plenty of free parking in the lot off of Island Street. Enter at 60 Island street and follow signs to our space in the back.


What are the hours?

The Uncommon Threads office is open Tuesday - Thursday, 10:00 am -3:00 pm. Morning and afternoon shifts are available. Morning shifts are 10:00 am - 12:00 pm and afternoon shifts are 1:00 - 3:00 pm.


Uncommon Closet is open to the public most Tuesdays, 10:00 am - 2:00 pm, and at least one Saturday a month.


Do I need to commit to a certain schedule?

Stylists and Sales Associates are scheduled for specific days and shifts. Inventory Coordinators and Boutique Assistants come as their schedule allows. Many volunteers choose to be “on call” for special events such as client sales, fundraisers and our tent sales.  


How do I sign up for volunteer shifts?

We have an online sign-up system where you can add and remove shifts as you need to. After new volunteer orientation, you will receive access to the sign-up website.
