Volunteer with PennyWise


We could not run our PennyWise stores without our wonderful volunteers! There are always plenty of opportunities to get involved.



PennyWise Volunteers

All of our volunteers are knows as STARS and our PennyWise STARS are very special to us! Our PennyWise stores have a variety of volunteer opportunities available for both individuals and groups. If you would like to become a PennyWise STAR volunteer, it’s as easy as filling out our volunteer application form.


Our PennyWise STARS can work in a variety of positions within our stores and donation centers. Click here for a list of available rewarding positions. Most PennyWise STARS are asked to commit to working regular three hour shifts.


PennyWise STARS can also work toward achieving special rewards. There are three different levels of achievement. As those levels of hours are achieved, that volunteer is rewarded with a special store discount to be applied to purchases for that year.


10% off  – completion of 60 hours per year

15% off  – completion of 144 hours per year

20% off  – completion of 288 hours per year


The best part about volunteering is that we are able to translate STARS’ volunteer hours into grant funding so by helping us in our stores, you are raising funds for our programs too.
