The WORKS is run by a committee of PTA volunteers representing many different schools throughout the Shoreline School District. They are supported each Wednesday by volunteers from local PTA units. Each local unit signs up to assist 2-3 Wednesdays during the school year. For this year’s schedule see Local PTA Schedule.
PTA volunteers must read and agree to the Volunteer Guidelines before volunteering on site at The WORKS. A Volunteer Agreement must be filled out, signed and turned in the first time one volunteers each year. You can contact the Volunteer Coordinator to confirm you have an agreement filed for the current year.

Sorting and packaging product drive items, restocking the clothing room, helping set up for special events are some of the ways groups can participate. To arrange for your group to volunteer please contact the Volunteer Coordinator - Jill Steinberg, firstname.lastname@example.org.
