“This is the best job you’ll never be paid for!”

Membership is open to both women and men who have the time and passion to volunteer.  Our programs are tailored to the needs of our community, but they also provide the perfect venue for our members’ interests and abilities.  Make a difference in your community by sharing your enthusiasm and extending a helping hand while making new friends.

We have several groups that play bridge, Bunco, Canasta, and pinochle.  Our crafting group has great fun with their projects.  Some of us have monthly dinner and movie nights, and a few go traveling together.

We also have members who are still working full time, or are enrolled in six (6) units of college classes, who join our non-voting Professionals’ Committee or serve as Community Volunteers.

Membership applications are being accepted now! You may email us at ThriftShopAL@att.com or call 209-466-8386 and leave a message; our membership committee will quickly contact you.
