Opportunity Details

Sort Children's Items

Hopes Closet of Santa Cruz is looking for dedicated and friendly individuals to help sort children's clothing, toys, shoes, books, and equipment.  Volunteers will also be helping with recycling.

The mission of Hopes Closet is to provide gently used clothing and necessities to children and families in need. Each child receives a Bundle of Hope containing clothing, shoes and age-appropriate books and toys. Our goal is to provide these items in a dignified manner. 

Volunteers make it possible for Hopes Closet to reach our targeted community: Foster children, family shelters, Early Head Start, public health nurses, social workers, local hospitals, Pregnancy Resource Center, Siena House, Janus Perinatal, Center for Farmworker Families, and more.

Volunteer times vary - Monday through Friday 10:00-4:00.
Training and Orientation is required and is provided by appointment
