Donate your time

We are always in need of co-conspirators! Our volunteers can take on numerous roles, including organizing materials, cleaning the store, getting the word out about what we do here, researching donations, programming workshops and educational activities, providing organizational guidance, coordinating events, making cool stuff, or any number of other activities.

Anyone is welcome to sign up to volunteer. Our volunteers have a huge impact on our organization, and many of our regular volunteers are essential to the success of our operations.

We are also happy to host students for service hours.


Sign up for Store Volunteer Shifts

Our volunteers generally help us sort donations, price and merchandise our materials,  keep the store organized, and create signage inside the store. If you are interested in getting involved, signing up for a shift is a great way to start. Sign up online for any of our available volunteer shifts on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. Head over to Volunteer Spot and sign on up!



VolunTuesday is our tons-of-fun monthly volunteer event! They take place on the last Tuesday of every month from 5 pm - 8 pm. Dimo's Pizza in Wicker Park donates pizza for us to yum-yum after some always much-needed VolunTuesday action. BYOB.
