Applications & Forms

Interested in volunteering at our Sparrow’s Nest Thrift Store?  No need to fill out our online application.  You can walk in to any store and start volunteering the same day!  All you have to do is fill out a brief waiver form when you get to the store.  It’s that easy!

Interested in other volunteer opportunities such as our shelter, headquarters, or events?  Please click the following link to complete our online Adult Volunteer Application:  http://bit.ly/Volunteerapp.  Once you complete the application and click ‘submit’, you will receive a confirmation message.  Please allow up to 72 hours for a response from our staff.
