Adelante Thrift’s "Stock the Store Summer"

Attention all volunteers!  You're invited to be a part of community transformation by participating in the first ever, "Stock the Store Summer" at Adelante Thrift!  Our warehouse is bursting at the seams, but demand is so high at our store that we can't keep enough merchandise on the shelves!  From day one customers have loved Adelante Thrift for it's customer service, clean and spacious environment, and quality products.  Our customer base is outstanding already and we're exceeding our sales projections for the first two months, but to reach our community development goals, we need more volunteers to help us move merchandise "from bag to rack" and keep our shelves stocked and well-organized.

This summer we are praying for and working hard to involve individuals and groups from across the city in fun and easy volunteer opportunities that are part of transforming our community! Serve times are available Monday through Saturday and even some evenings each week.  Visit to sign up as an individual or group and we'll follow up to schedule a time that works for you!
