Volunteers Needed

The SMILE Thrift Store is looking for volunteers! Thrift Store volunteers provide the crucial energy needed to operate a store that generates most of funding needed to support SMILE's ministries, including the Food Pantry. We have immediate openings in receiving, sorting, furniture sales, and furniture pickups. For more information, visit the Thrift Store front desk and request a volunteer application, or call 410-326-0009 during Store hours.
