Volunteers Help TurnStyles Re-Open

Like other retail stores, the TurnStyles Thrift locations closed in March in response to the pandemic. One by one, each of the stores has successfully re-opened – a feat that could only be accomplished with the help of a mighty group of volunteers.

“At a time when we saw an increase in need across our communities, many of our volunteers answered the call to mobilize again,” explained Ryan Forshee, Senior Director of Store Operations. “They recognize that TurnStyles is a ministry of Catholic Charities, and that our three stores raise funds that directly impact the agency’s efforts to provide help, hope and hospitality to our neighbors in need.”

Volunteers are essential to keeping the thrift stores up and running. “We are grateful for those who are willing to serve during this difficult time,” said Cari Olberding, Volunteer Coordinator. All three TurnStyles locations need volunteer support to process donations, hang/tag clothing, price housewares, organize the store floor and serve as cashiers.
