Salt & Light Grocery and Thrift Stores

Description

Salt & Light's community grocery and thrift stores are staffed every day with volunteers. Both Champaign and Urbana locations are open from 9am-8pm Monday through Saturday, and Urbana is open on Sundays from 11am-5pm; all of these hours are available for volunteer help. We have a wide variety of volunteer tasks needed, such as greeting or bagging in the store, receiving donations in our drive-throughs, sorting, pricing, and preparing donations in our processing areas, and stocking and staging items on the retail floor.

All volunteers at the Champaign location (1512 West Anthony Drive) must be 18 years of age or older. At our Urbana location (1819 South Philo Road), ages 14 and up may volunteer individually, while ages 5-14 may volunteer accompanied by an adult. To volunteer on an ongoing basis, individuals must attend our volunteer orientation before being regularly scheduled.

For a current schedule of volunteer orientations, visit our website at www.saltandlightministry.org. For other questions about volunteering, or to schedule a volunteer group, contact our Associate Director, Lisa Sheltra, at lisa@saltandlightministry.org.

Final Date: 

Friday, December 31, 2021 - 12:00am
