In The Image — an organization that links new and gently used clothing, housewares, furniture and appliances with people in need — could use your help.


Each week, volunteers sort through thousands of clothing, housewares, furniture and appliances with help from schools, churches, businesses and social groups. When there’s a shortage of volunteers, some work just doesn’t get done.


Such is the current state of the organization’s pick-up service, which has been suspended until further notice.


In an effort to recruit volunteers, In The Image is holding a Volunteer Orientation Wednesday, Nov. 9 at 10 am.


All volunteers will receive an overview of the organization and a tour. Training will be provided on the first day of volunteering. In The Image needs help with sorting, hanging, stocking and providing customer service to its guests in the Free Store.
