Become a Volunteer
Volunteers play a vital role at Shelter, Inc. Many volunteers give of their time at the Shelter, Inc. Thrift Shop in Schaumburg while others volunteer at special events, fundraising opportunities, serving on committees and by providing clerical assistance in our office.
For those that are looking to make a difference in the lives of abused and neglected children in our communities, there are a number of opportunities to get involved at Shelter, Inc.:
Shelter, Inc. Auxiliary: Become a part of this innovative and creative group. The Auxiliary is committed to supporting Shelter, Inc.'s services by sponsoring and coordinating fund-raising endeavors.
Friends of Shelter: This newly formed auxilary group shares a common bond with Shelter, Inc., a desire to help raise funds for children that are victims of abuse and neglect through the support and coordination of fundraising events.
Thrift Shop: Located in Schaumburg, our thrift shop thrives because of the volunteers that give of their time to assist in sorting, pricing and displaying donated items. New volunteers are always welcome, whether you have just a couple hours or a day a week, your support is greatly appreciated!
