Hooray for Summer Thrift Shop Volunteers!
In June, several PHS students came out to volunteer with their parents, and we encourage other Mariner students aged 10 and up to do the same!  
Summertime means DOUBLE hours, so any shift you work in July or August can earn lots of money for PHS.  Don't forget that volunteers earn 50% off at each shift, and teens who volunteer can earn hours for their middle or high school if they need them.  
 
 
 
See what recent volunteers have to say about helping out at the
Thrift Shop:
  • Rising 5th grader Jonah Norris said, "I really enjoyed it and was surprised it raises money for his school." Jonah and his mom, Cheryl, will be back in July.  Want to join them?
  • Longtime volunteer Jamie Swaine says, "Rylee and I really enjoy the opportunity to volunteer together at the thrift shop. Not only do we have a lot of fun, but I also feel good that she is learning from a young age the importance of volunteering and responsibility for her school."
  • Debbie Meyer and her teenage daughter, Beckett Brantley, volunteered monthly this past year.  Debbie says, "Volunteering at the PTA Thrift Store is something I look forward to every month. We tidy up the store, and have a ball as we do it.  Getting to shop afterwards with a lovely discount on already great finds is better than eating a whole bag of Fritos, and I do love Fritos. Come join us!"
  • Former PHS parent Joy McKeon has continued to serve monthly as a volunteer supervisor and clothing sorter, even though her daughter left PHS 4 years ago.  She says, "I started volunteering at the Thrift Store because when we moved here we were limited on our ability to donate money to help with fundraisers and the school's needs. I was able to meet people and make friends while volunteering, and I was able to raise money for the teachers at the same time, which made me feel really good inside. Volunteering is an important part of my life and our family dynamic - the more you give the better you feel. I heard a lot of complaining about how often and how much the school asked people for money and instead of complaining I did something about it by volunteering."
Come Volunteer With Us!

Contact julie.ricker@gmail.com if you want to help at a different time. Drop-ins are also allowed during hours the shop is open, so we can let a manager know if you are interested in some daytime or Saturday shifts.
 
No time to volunteer at a work session?
You can still earn volunteer hours by donating much needed supplies to the thrift shop!  
Purchase needed items from the Amazon Wishlist or grab some of these things when you are out and notify president@phspta.org to arrange for pickup: 30-gallon Trash Bags, Masking Tape, Hand Soap, Mopping Liquid, Lysol Spray, and Paper Towels 
 
Please save your receipts to include with your donations because that's how hours are credited! 
One volunteer hour is earned for every $7.50 in supplies donated.  
 
Thank you for your contributions!
