A Mission Thrift store in Oshawa (Simcoe and Taunton) is in need of some people to volunteer throughout the summer to help with the turnover of donated goods (sorting, pricing, placing on the floor, and other various tasks).

Most of their Volunteers come 1-2 days per week for 3-4 hours per shift.


Proceeds made from donations given to the store goto the Bible League of Canada. They use the money to produce Christian materials (Bibles, study books, etc.) and educational materials for people all over the world.
