Volunteer

Volunteers are an integral part of WIN’s programs and services. At any given time, WIN has 40 to 50 active volunteers from all walks of life.

As a WIN volunteer, you will have an opportunity to gain work experience, meet new people, and support a good cause. We often need volunteer help in each of our locations and for a wide variety of duties, from donations production to storefront customer service. Tell us what skills you have or want to gain and which locations you can work at, and we'll do what we can to establish something that works for you as much as it works for us.

Benefits of Volunteering with WIN

  • Retail training: phone systems, customer service and sales procedures

  • Milestone recognition
  • Reference letter
  • Community building and the knowledge that YOU have made a difference

After nine months of continuous volunteering with WIN, you will be eligible to apply for membership in the cooperative. Members get to attend annual general meetings, strategic planning sessions and have a voice in deciding the direction of the organization.
