Volunteering & Jobs


Small, independent, non-for-profit thrift shop located in Roslindale Village is in search of a part time warehouse assistant/sales associate. The Shop is open Monday-Saturday from 9:30am to 5:00pm. The position for hire is for 2-3 days per week (16 to 24 hours) – which includes the occasional weekend shift.

The ideal candidate has experience working with furniture.  This position is physically demanding and requires regularly moving large furniture items with a dolly onto the sales floor and off the sales floor, as well as into customer’s vehicles.

Other useful skills that we consider important for this position – a flexible schedule, an eye for space and design, and most importantly – retail/customer service experience.  Ideally, you are fun, personable and interested in working in a very busy non-for-profit retail environment. Besides moving furniture and donation box lots, other duties include running a cash register, assisting customers, and organizing and cleaning the retail space.

Our customers and donors represent diverse and international populations, and the organization strives to include a staff that reflects this wonderful diversity. We believe that embracing staff with perspectives on marginalized groups must be centered in the work that we do. Thus, people of color, LGBTQ, women and bilingual/international candidates are strongly urged to apply.

All proceeds from the shop benefit The Home for Little Wanderers- A family and child service agency whose mission is to ensure the healthy behavioral, emotional, social and educational development and physical well-being of children and families living in at-risk circumstances.

The Shop follows the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and City of Boston guidelines to ensure public safety during the coronavirus pandemic. These measures include requiring that all staff and volunteers are fully vaccinated.
