Volunteers play a crucial role in our ability to succeed at Goodwill and it is our desire to provide every volunteer an appropriate position that fits his/her individual skills and interests. Through partnering with volunteers at our retail stores, warehouse, Job Connection Centers and main office, we seek to be the leader in providing job training, employment and educational services to individuals with disabilities and/or disadvantages. As part of our volunteer care efforts, we provide orientation and training for each prospective volunteer.
Does your company have an annual day of service? Goodwill offers a variety of opportunities for groups from 5 -125 and we would love for you to spend the day with us!
Through the years we have hosted dozens of area groups including high school and university students as well as local businesses large and small. We can accommodate groups of up to 125 people in our warehouse and groups up to 12 people in our retail stores.
Your group can volunteer Monday through Friday, in our warehouse and 7 days a week in one of our retail locations. Please note that we are not currently taking volunteers in either of our computer stores. We do ask that warehouse volunteers be here a minimum of 3 hours and retail store volunteers put in a minimum of 2 hours.
We provide volunteer opportunities for individuals seeking to complete mandated community service hours. The available CSR volunteer opportunities include positions throughout our organization. For a list of available retail locations click here.
All community service volunteers are required to attend one of our volunteer orientations. Please note that all volunteers age 14-17 must have a parent or guardian present during the orientation and all volunteer hours served. The volunteer orientations are scheduled to take place every other Wednesday afternoon along the following schedule:
Upon completion of the orientation, background checks will be run on each prospective volunteer and they will be notified of their ability to volunteer within two business days. Please note that any prospective volunteer with an assault or weapons charge will not be eligible to volunteer within any capacity.
If you have additional questions or would like to schedule a group volunteer day please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at 214.638.2800, ext. 244 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
