Mercer Island Thrift Shop looking for volunteers | Community news

The Mercer Island Thrift Shop is looking for both adult and youth volunteers to work at the store.

Volunteers will be able to gain retail experience, and a discount at the store if they volunteer 12 or more hours a month.

"We are looking for volunteers who enjoy interacting with the community and giving back," says MITS Coordinator Suzanne Philen.

Revenues from the store go directly to Mercer Island Youth and Family Services, helping to pay for various programs, including counselors at local schools.
