There are ten MCC Thrift Shops in BC and they are a vital part of our ministry. The Thrift Shops sell donated clothing, books, furniture and other items in order to raise income for the ministry of MCC BC. The shop is a ministry in and of itself, providing low cost goods to people in our community as well as providing international and local aid. Thrift Shops also make a valuable contribution to good stewardship and a healthy environment by recycling items that might otherwise be thrown away. They also provide a sense of community to volunteers and the people we serve through social interaction in a caring environment.
The successful candidate would be involved in working on cash, assisting with the sorting and pricing of clothing, receiving donations, clerking/assisting in the retail area with customer service and merchandising. Position will involve working in a respectful and caring way alongside volunteers with special needs, as well as a significant senior volunteer population, enabling for enriching connections. This position reports to the Shop Manager.
This is an ongoing casual as needed position (typically 2-3 days/week). Availability on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays is required. Start date as soon as possible.
