Group Volunteer Opportunities

Looking for a fun way to give back as a group?

Career Wardrobe wants your company or organization to come volunteer at The Wardrobe Resale!

Career Wardrobe is a social enterprise that uses clothing to empower individuals to work. Every year, companies, organizations, school groups, & individuals clean out their closets and donate nearly $1,000,000 worth of clothing to us! All that clothing doesn’t sort itself!

 

As a Career Wardrobe volunteer, you will:

  • Sort clothing donations using Career Wardrobe’s standard sorting methods, to ensure that every piece of clothing that goes out on the floor is fashionable, appropriate, and in great condition
  • Steam, hang, tag, and put out inventory for our professional work attire dressing program and the sales floor of The Wardrobe Resale store
  • Merchandise the sales floor by dressing mannequins, putting together outfits for Instagram, and updating accessory displays
  • Help The Wardrobe Resale customers shop for the perfect items, whether they are looking for a suit for an upcoming interview, or a gorgeous dress for a holiday party

11081465_10205449133979001_4593494254230200350_nVolunteer shifts are available Monday – Friday, from 12 noon – 6 PM, and Saturdays from 12 noon – 5 PM. Generally, we can accommodate volunteer groups of 5-10 people, depending on our schedule. Please have an idea of the time frame when you’d like to volunteer, to ensure a speedy scheduling process.

All volunteering activities take place at The Wardrobe Resale, 1822 Spring Garden Street (corner of 19th and Spring Garden), in the Fairmount section of Philadelphia. On-street and pay lot parking is available nearby, and we are accessible by the Broad Street Line and SEPTA bus routes 32, 33, 43, and 48.
