 VOLUNTEERING AND COMMUNITY SERVICE

The Clay County Clothes Closet is managed and operated by an all-volunteer staff,  and we are always in need of helping hands.  We have volunteer opportunities where anybody can join and help. We need help assisting children/adults in selecting clothing during service days, sorting and sizing clothing donations, restocking service areas, and sharing specific professional talents and expertise.  One of the most meaningful gifts anyone can give is the gift of time and the action of service. We gladly welcome all volunteers to help carry out our mission and ask that you consider joining us.

Take a moment to find an Volunteer opportunity that fits you best.

Students and special service groups can obtain community service hours by volunteering their time on Saturdays or during times when school is not in session.

Clothing Selection Assistants are our front of house volunteers. They work one-on-one with individuals coming in to receive clothing and assist clients during their clothing selection process.

This volunteering opportunity takes place at the same time as our serving schedule hours:

  • Tuesdays: 8:30 AM – 12:30 PM
  • First Saturday of each month: 9:00 AM – 12:30 PM

If you have a passion for organization and prefer to help behind the scenes, this might be the perfect way for you to participate. Volunteers in this role don’t have to take on a public facing role. We receive small mountains of jumbled up and mixed batches of donated clothing every week and we rely on our clothing management volunteers to quality control, sort, size, and store incoming clothing donations.

This volunteering opportunity takes place weekly on:

  •  Wednesdays: 8:00 AM – 11:00 AM

The restock volunteer role is a behind the scenes support role. Client serving room shelves/racks get a bit thin after service days and we rely on our restock volunteer team to identify depleted areas and restock them from sorted and stored clothing reserves to ensure the next service day goes smoothly efficiently, and that clothing of all sizes is available for clients.

This volunteering opportunity takes place weekly on:

  •  Fridays: 9:00 AM – 12:30 AM

If you have a unique professional skill set and want to donate your services to the cause, we want to speak with you. We rely on volunteers for everything! Some of the professional expert skills we need include:

  • Grant Writing
  • Fundraising
  • Public Speaking
  • Website Management
  • Social Media (Facebook/Twitter)
*Young adults must have completed high school to meet CCCC’s eligibility requirements for working directly with the clients we serve.
**All Clay County Clothes Closet Volunteers are background screened.
