Giving your time is one of the most rewarding ways you can support POB's sight-saving programs. POB has a variety of volunteer opportunities that provide a way for you to utilize your skills and experience while making a difference in the community. POB actively recruits volunteers to help in the administrative office and resale shops, at health fairs by distributing information or performing glaucoma screenings, assisting at major fundraising events, and more.
Ongoing Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteering at the resale shops is an ongoing weekly or monthly commitment depending on your schedule. Volunteers help with sorting donations, stocking, store displays and check-out. Please call your closest resale shop for more information, (703) 683-2558 (Alexandria) or (301) 942-4707 (Kensington).
