Imagine a store open 6 days a week and has two shifts per day operated by 2 to 3 people that are not paid. That is The Open Door of Delta. We operate a 5500 square foot Thrift Store with volunteer cashiers, stockers, sorters and donation receivers. What is even more amazing is the average age of our volunteers is 75.

“I hope to bring all faiths together, to share a helping hand for those who need a little help, a sense of helping others in need.”
Being a volunteer can be a very rewarding experience. Many of our volunteers truly feel they make a difference in someone’s life. While volunteers don’t work directly with clients we serve, often they have the opportunity to meet them as many of our clients also volunteer within our organization. Regardless of why you want to volunteer we would welcome you at The Open Door of Delta.
