Volunteering at the Miriam Switching Post

Although the job is performed voluntarily, the commitment is professional.

We are always looking for people who want the chance to do something that will truly make a difference in the lives of others. We have fun doing what we do, but we also work very hard at the jobs we volunteer to do.

Volunteer Opportunities

Are you a 'People Person'? An 'Outgoing Organizer'? 'Consummate Collector'? 'Designing Decorator'?
– Put your talents & knowledge to good use while helping out the Miriam cause!


At the Switching Post

Workers commit to the same three hour shift every week. Duties vary, and can include selling merchandise, cashiering, answering phones, addressing envelopes, entering data, unpacking and sorting donations, cleaning and polishing donated items, and keeping the shop tidy and clean.

Off–Site…

Some may work at home or off-site: marketing, picking up small donations, soliciting furniture donations, repairing furniture, polishing silver, or washing and ironing linens.

Sometimes a team will work at a donor’s home, packing small household items for later pick-up by our movers.

…& Empty Outs

Estate Services volunteers work on an as-needed basis at off-site locations: sorting, packing, labeling and distributing items during the Empty-out itself, or marketing our services to potential clients.

We could not meet our fundraising goals every year without the countless hours of hard work so generously given by our dedicated volunteers.
