Volunteer at OutFITters
Click below to hear more about volunteering at OutFITters Thrift Stores:
OutFITters Thrift Stores in Manchester and Concord offer a wide selection of new and gently used furniture, electronics, seasonal decorations, housewares and clothing and accessories for the whole family.
Volunteers are at the heart of OutFITters Thrift Stores and without them, the store couldn’t run successfully! 100% of the profits from the stores go directly into the FIT programs that help homeless individuals and families, keeping the store stocked and running smoothly is essential for the success of all our programs.
IMPORTANT: This volunteer opportunity does not work directly with our clients. If you are interested in working with our clients, please click HERE.
In 2017, OutFITters had over 18,000 volunteer hours! Thank you all for your support!
We are looking for volunteers to help with:

At FIT, we want to ensure the best possible volunteer program. Because of the work we do and the population with which we work, we require that specific criteria be met by our volunteers. Please review these criteria carefully and note whether you meet each requirement before completing the application process. If you do not meet our requirements, we’ll be happy to refer you to a more appropriate volunteer placement.
