Be a VOLUNTEER

There are many ways to volunteer at Note in the Pocket. Pick one that you like. Try them all. It takes EVERYONE to make Note in the Pocket function.

Clothing Processing

Volunteer Center

Note in the Pocket has volunteer opportunities available Monday-Thursday in 1-4 hr shifts from 9 am – 1 pm. We need help with quality control, sorting, sizing, organizing and packaging clothing orders. Clothing processing is done at our Volunteer Center at 5100 Lacy Avenue (off Millbrook Road).

Children aged 12-15 may volunteer at Note in the Pocket when accompanied 1:1 by an adult.  Children age 16 may volunteer unaccompanied.

Order Delivery

Can you deliver? Delivery people pick up completed clothing requests from our Volunteer Center located at 240 Newton Road, Suite 101 and deliver them to the school or agency who referred the student(s) with clothing needs.

You can deliver to specific schools, agencies or areas within your comfort zone and designate certain days or how often you would like to help. We contact drivers each morning to see if they are able to deliver to a specific location.

Have questions? Just ask – volunteer@noteinthepocket.org

Donation Pick Ups

We have donation bins for quality used clothing in various locations around Wake County. We need volunteers to empty and deliver the clothing donations to our Volunteer Center on a regular basis. Usually this is 1-2 times per month and is very flexible.

Clothing Drives

Anyone can host a clothing drive or fund drive in their neighborhood, church, school, scout troop, or even via facebook or through your email address book! Advertise, collect, sort, and deliver clothes that will be given to children in need in Wake County.

Administrative Tasks

There are many administrative tasks from data entry to filing to preparing mailings that must be done to keep the organization funded and running smoothly. Various skills are needed at certain times of the year. Let us know if you would like to help with any of these.
