Thrift Shop Volunteers
We are grateful for your commitment to volunteer in support of the Hanscom Spouses Club Minuteman Thrift Shop (MTS). We rely on volunteers, as it takes a minimum of three volunteers to open up the store and maintain store operations.
We value our volunteers time and contributions and offer a volunteer discount benefit on our items. Download our Thrift Store Volunteer Agreement for more information.
