RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada is looking to hire a handful of people to work in its thrift stores and help open donation drop-off locations.

According to CEO Marie Baxter more people are visiting thrift stores to look for good deals or because their finances have changed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

We have seen an uptick in customers and uptick in donations, we just need more staff so we can get through all the great things, so that we can sell them and benefit our programs.”

“One hundred percent of the profits from our thrift stores fund our food pantry, St. Vincent’s Dining Room, our emergency programming, crossroads residential program, our immigration services, its pervasive, it’s really critical funding.”

“So we need people to come and join our team, it will be a fantastic way to give back and earn some cash,” said Baxter.
