Please join us on our next volunteer opportunity! Meet the new manager of The Closet of Greater Herndon and become familiar with the thrift shop's operations. This is a great way to work with other CBEers for a couple of hours and support this vital community resource. You can volunteer for a  2-hour block: 10 AM - 2 PM, 12-2 PM or 2-4 PM, or another time period that is more convenient. Tuesday store hours are 10 AM- 5 PM. Donate and shop as well! If you are a first-time volunteer, have questions, or if these days are not convenient, please contact Betsy Rock and Paula Yass. The Closet is at 845 Station St, Herndon, or 703-437-7652.
