Free Store volunteer


Open Table Ministry

What You'll Do:

Open Table Ministry operates a "Free Store" twice a week, on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, and we need volunteers to help us staff it!


Appropriate for group service projects

Appropriate for court-ordered service

Must be 16 years or older

Additional Requirements:

The ability to lift clothing bins up to 15 pounds.



Our Free Store provides new or gently used clothing, shoes, and hygiene items to Durham's homeless and unsheltered community, for free. As a volunteer, you will interact one on one with clients and assist with distributing items. If you enjoy helping others and giving things away, if you can move and lift clothing bins, if you have spare time on Tuesday or Thursday mornings, then you are just the volunteer we are looking for!

Some volunteers work once a month, twice a month, or weekly. Whatever fits your schedule works for us. We operate out of the basement of Trinity United Methodist Church at 215 N. Church St in downtown Durham. Volunteer shifts run from 9:15 am until 11:45 am on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, and you can sign up for as many or few shifts as you'd like.
