Volunteer Boutique Assistant Role Description
Tittle of Role: Boutique Assistant.
Purpose of the Role: We like to have the Alley’s House Boutique neat and organized. However, we usually need quite a bit of help in order to keep it tidy! This is where our volunteers come in handy. We need help with sorting, organizing and displaying our donated clothes, shoes, toys and household/hygiene items.
We want the room to be as functional as possible to easily shop and walk through it. Moms earn Alley’s House dollars by accomplishing their daily, weekly and monthly goals. On Fridays, Moms shop at the Boutique and use their earned points to “purchase” items for their child and themselves.
