The Second Tern Thrift Store is the primary funding source for the Sunriver Nature Center and Oregon Observatory. We are fueled by our community. By donations that fill our store, and the volunteers who staff it. Are you interested in contributing your time to the Second Tern? We have many ways you can be a part of our team.

Here is a sample of the roles at the Tern:

This job can vary by the minute. Tasks can involve doing pick ups from donors, helping unload donations at the store, or to sort and categorize items for each department. These volunteers also will test, repair or recycle items as needed,

These volunteers are the feet on the ground during our open hours. Most work within a particular area, some float throughout the store. They greet customers, help them find items or departments, keep the store tidy, show jewelry or other display case items and answer general questions.

Departmental volunteers.
Help within a team to presort, clean, price and display items for sale. Much of this work is done on our work day when the store is closed to the public, but is also done behind the scenes during open hours.
