Kiwanis Marketplace seeking volunteers for thrift store


CAREFREE – The Kiwanis Club of Carefree, a non-profit organization, is seeking volunteer assistance for the Kiwanis Marketplace Thrift Store in Cave Creek.

Approaching its second year of operation, the Kiwanis Marketplace is in need of additional volunteers to help staff the popular destination. Store sale profits support Kiwanis Club of Carefree scholarships and other programs for children of the north Valley.

“As the snowbirds head back to their summer homes, our volunteer force becomes depleted while our sales continue to increase. Summer is a perfect time to get to know our organization and become involved with the Marketplace. We welcome volunteers in all areas,” said Craig Lemke, General Manager.

Volunteers are asked to contribute 3-4 hours each week or every other week with flexible scheduling. The valuable volunteer assistance allows the Kiwanis Club of Carefree Benefit Foundation to continue its mission of community involvement and service.

Volunteer opportunities include:

Pricing and stocking of household goods
Sales floor customer assistance
Cashier and Assistant Cashier
Jewelry sales and pricing
Book, CD, and DVD sorting and pricing
Linens processing
Donation unloading, sorting, and delivery
Electrical shop and hardware processing
Furniture pick up
Scheduling of customer pick ups

The Kiwanis Marketplace is open 9 a.m.-1 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday. Interested parties can apply at the store or call Craig Lemke, General Manager, at (480) 488-7169.

The Kiwanis Marketplace is located at 6535 E. Cave Creek Road, in Cave Creek.
