The W Pantry and Thrift Shop is receiving numerous requests for volunteers. While we are happy to accommodate these requests, we occupy a very small space. There are three additional spaces to work, specifically in the back room organizing donations. There are other volunteer opportunities available through the Volunteer Hub.

Are you interested in helping out at The W? We could not do what we do without volunteers. Volunteers play a key role in The W's success which ultimately helps WSU students to succeed. We are looking for volunteers to help in a variety of ways. If you are interested in volunteering with us, please sign up using the link below. 

Please know, there is a mandatory volunteer training session which will need to be completed prior to volunteering at the food pantry or thrift shop. This is mandatory even if you have volunteered at the food pantry/thrift shop in the past. This only needs to be completed once per semester. Students who complete the training will be given access to the volunteer sign-up.

Volunteer training
