We are always looking for individuals to volunteer at our stores. The work depends on the amount of time and how often you would like to volunteer, but some of the assignments are:

  • Sort through donations for sellable and non-sellable items
  • Maintain the sales floor: keep clothes racks neat and orderly by rehanging, straightening, recategorizing them into the proper size areas
  • Straightening the shoes and bric-a-brac area
  • Monitoring dressing rooms
  • General merchandising of store

Corporate and other groups are also welcome! Assignments are contingent on the size of the group and the amount of time. Please email volunteers@hopeservices.org to set up a time to discuss.

One final experience I will never forget was my time at Hope Services in Mountain View, an organization aimed at assisting the developmentally disabled. During the weeks I volunteered at Hope Services, I made multiple friends – not only with fellow students, but also with the people I was assisting. It was a great learning experience and provided me with a different perspective on the needs of the physically and mentally challenged.” — Keshav Singh
