Interested in Volunteering?

Volunteer opportunities are available Monday-Saturday from 11am-5pm at both Wardrobe locations in Philadelphia and Upper Darby. Volunteer shifts typically last about two hours. Many of our volunteers commit to a weekly timeframe whereas others come as needed or when they can.

Volunteers also receive a special shopping discount as a thank you from us for their time!

All in-person volunteers will be required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination status (i.e. digital or paper record) during their first shift or orientation. The Wardrobe will not keep copies of these records.

To select the type of volunteer opportunity that best suits you, please read through the opportunities below. For questions, please email Volunteer@WardrobePA.org
