Donation Organizing and Sorting for Distribution

Organizing & Sorting Donations for Distribution

"At CityTeam we have Neighborhood outreach programs that relieve challenges that low-income families face to put food on the table and make ends meet".

Every Wednesday we give out items for FREE at our thrift store. Those who need clothing, food and baby items (clothing, formula, diapers, footwear, etc.) are welcome to shop for free!

This is where you are needed. Our programs are able to function due to the great help of volunteers. Volunteers help sort items and make sure everything is in order for the programs to run on Wednesday.

This work is fulfilling, because you know that you have affected someone's life in a positive way by providing for their immediate needs!

Community Service: You can complete community service at our organization. Please see details below.

  • Sort and hang Clothing for Adults (Men Women), Children and babies
  • Sort and arrange sneakers/shoes
