Volunteers are a fundamental part of Companies to Classrooms.  We essentially run a retail store without a cash register.   We do not charge for our merchandise but we still have to acquire product, maintain inventory, stock the shelves, promote our service, etc. and all these tasks are performed by volunteers.  This can be a one-time project or an on-going commitment.  Our volunteers are:

  • Individuals

  • Current or Retired Teachers

  • Students

  • Retirees

  • Employees of Corporate partners

  • Anyone interested in supporting education in their community


  • Donation pick-up volunteer:
    pick up supplies from companies around the metro
    flexible schedule
    must be comfortable driving small UHaul truck, able to lift heavier boxes
    teams of 2 work best

  • Weekly afternoon warehouse volunteer:
    organize warehouse, accept & sort donations, stock store shelves
    once a week afternoon shifts
    independent-working, physically-able applicants preferred
    ability to use manual pallet jack is a plus
    flexible schedule


Our long-term goal is to serve all teachers in the metro area, however, at the present time funding does not allow us to do so. In order to serve more districts, paid staff is necessary to run our store and warehouse and until we have dollars available to hire help, we have to limit our service area. Therefore we have established the VOLUNTEER-TO-SHOP PROGRAM so that teachers outside our current service area can volunteer three hours in exchange for utilizing our store . You are limited to one shopping trip per calendar month, and will be charged a shopping fee for each trip. Fill out our application form if interested, and we will be in touch as soon as we can.
