Friendly cashiers are needed for three-to-four-hour shifts on Thursdays and Fridays. Other tasks include working with the public and helping around the thrift store. A volunteer with a truck or trailer is needed to pick up donated items.

Drivers needed

The Friendship Club offers a place, activities and opportunities for disadvantaged teen girls to grow, but 75 percent of our girls can’t get to our location without a volunteer to drive them. This requires a short-term time commitment. We will notify you by e-mail or postal mail of the dates and times when drivers are needed, so you can choose the assignments that fit your schedule.
