Without our volunteers, the Community Clothes Closet could not function. Our volunteers assist in providing services for those in need in Northeastern Wisconsin by giving time in a variety of different roles at the CCC. Helping clients register, check in/out, or helping behind the scenes in the office or with clothing donations, we have a need for volunteers in various positions.
Not only do we have individual volunteers on a daily basis, but we also work with groups of volunteers from local businesses and organizations. If your group or organization is looking to give back to the community and to participate in team-building, please email us or call us at 920-731-7834.
