The backbone of a successful nonprofit organization is its volunteer corps. We at Ruth's Reusable Resources wish to better utilize and better develop our volunteer corps. If you are interested, there will be many benefits to you as well as the center.

Teacher Checkout:

We have a unique opportunity for a volunteer in our Teacher Store! You will learn more about 3R's mission and the types of supplies we are getting into the hands of teachers and students throughout the state of Maine. If you are looking to learn more about working with a nonprofit organization, network with people in the education community or people from your own community, this opportunity is for you!


We are looking for someone who can commit to 5-15 hours/week who would like experience volunteering and to be a part of an enriching and educational experience. All of our items are tallied and accounted for as they leave the center. The person in this volunteer position will assist in the counting and documentation of items as our members checkout.



Some of us are not very neat, taking displays apart, opening up reams of paper and even dropping things to the floor. Prior to the opening of every day, approximately 2 hours are spent re-shelving and straightening popular items. Persons who can help with this important task can do so during open hours, saving 3R's staff many, many hours per week.


Volunteer coordinator(s):

As the title implies, this person or persons would help us schedule and coordinate our volunteers.


Grant Writer(s):

We are planning many projects this year. Are you an experienced grant writer? Do you have an interest in writing grants for this unique partnership between nonprofit/schools/businesses? If this interests you, we need you!



Can you contact area news corps? Do you communicate well with others? We need a volunteer who could bring our information to the business public.

Our Fabulous Volunteers!
