Volunteers Needed!

You are invited to participate in Swap-O-Rama-Rama as staff. Swap-O-Rama-Rama is a giant clothing swap and do-it-yourself workstations where creatives explore reuse and creativity through the recycling of used clothing.

At Swap-O-Rama-Rama consumers are taught to be creators. 

This is a community event and we need your help!

There are a few volunteer opportunities available:  

1. Sorters/Admission Table - these volunteers split their time between working the door (taking admission fees & explaining the event to new arrivals) and sorting the clothing that is dropped off.   It can be fast-paced in the sorting room, but lots of fun too! Available shifts are 10:30am - 1:30pm  or 1:30pm - 4:30pm  

2. DIY Sewing Station Helper - people with sewing skills are needed in the sewing room to help people revamp their clothing finds.   Helpers are not expected to alter clothing for people (unless you really want to, then go for it!), just to give advice, help with technical problems, and encourage people to let their creativity loose.
Available shifts are 10:30am - 1:30pm  or 1:30pm - 4:30pm

If you’re interested in volunteering, please contact Lisa at with a little information about yourself and your preferred shift.
