Volunteers are the backbone of CRRC, and nowhere is that more obvious than at the Thrift Store. Here, volunteers receive donations. All donations are sorted. Some go to the barn, and most go to the thrift store. Some go in the trash bin. Once they are sorted, volunteers price most of the items. Then, volunteers distribute the items to the proper store location. Housewares, electronics, clothing, household items, school/office supplies, computer supplies, books, DVDs, Christmas items, magazines, collectibles, porcelain dolls, greeting cards, jewelry, and antiques all have their own sections. And, in some cases, a volunteer is assigned as the lead in a section. Other volunteers are cashiers. Others research antiques or collectible book donations for proper pricing. There’s a job for just about anyone wanting to volunteer. There’s a volunteer for just about any section. And the perks? Well, let’s just say there are some special ones, and leave it at that. For now.
