Eunice is one of our many dedicated Monday morning Volunteers in the Clothing department. She works at the register and helps keep the store looking organized and ready for our customers. When we first approached Eunice to ask her about how she began volunteering here at Care & Share, we thought she would tell us about the past 11 months that she has been here in the Clothing Shoppe, but her story starts long before there even was a Care & Share, let alone a Clothing Shoppe.

Eunice's father served with Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) after WWII and her brother currently works for them as well. Her family ties to MCC brought her to Care & Share when it was still just one shoppe. She would volunteer occasionally on Saturdays with her church, Perkasie Mennonite. As her days grew busier with work and other obligations, Eunice did not have the time to continue her service. After retiring, however, Eunice was looking for ways to once again fill her time and to give back to her community. Her friend, Lois, encouraged her to come to Happy Hour one evening to give it a try one year ago. Eunice has been among one of our many wonderful regular Volunteers ever since! Her favorite things about volunteering at Care & Share are the people that she has the pleasure of working with and that she knows her time here is well-spent and directly benefits our local community and MCC. Eunice also loves her interactions with customers and keeping busy through her generous work here.

We have found, that the best volunteer recruitment comes from an individual invitation.  Our Volunteer Happy Hour's are on the final Tuesday of each month. In addition, we have volunteer orientations several times throughout the week. This email address is being protected from spambots.

    Care & Share Thrift Shoppes is now a Certified Autism Center™, designated by the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES). To earn the designation, staff have completed autism training and certification in order to better understand and work with autistic visitors and supporters.

    “At Care & Share, we are glad you are our neighbor! We want to be at our best to welcome you to shop, donate and volunteer," said Sarah Bergin, Executive Director. "After going through the certification process, our staff is now prepared with the knowledge that customers, donors, and volunteers are all differently abled. By welcoming everyone, our organization is stronger.”

    In addition to a vibrant volunteer program, Care & Share also works with over 35 organizations as volunteers fine-tune skills in areas like receiving and processing donations, customer service, and social skills. The Shoppes accommodate weekly to daily volunteer opportunities for individuals of all different abilities.

    “IBCCES is excited to announce the designation of Care & Share Thrift Shoppes to show that organizations of all types can benefit from training and certification to enhance the customer and community experience,” said Myron Pincomb, IBCCES Board Chairman.
