If you prefer a relaxing indoor event, sign up to volunteer at NOVA Thrift Shop or Full Circle Thrift Store! Both of these events begin in September and stop at the end of the school year. NOVA Thrift Shop runs each Tuesday from 3:30 to 5:00pm. Full Circle Thrift Store takes place every Tuesday and Wednesday from 3:30 to 5:00pm. These events are very simple. At NOVA or Full Circle, you start with a few bags of clothing, then you mark each article of clothing with a price tag, and then you hang up the item on the shelf wherever it belongs! You can also assist by organizing the clothing racks. This is a perfect event to do with your friends because you can talk and hang out them while working. At NOVA, a maximum of three people can sign up per shift, and at Full Circle, five people may volunteer at each event.

Both NOVA Thrift Shop and Full Circle Thrift Store's proceeds benefit victims of domestic violence. This is a wonderful cause and a great motivation for volunteering.

A few months ago, a woman from Full Circle Thrift Store contacted CB West's Key Club requesting donated goods. CB West successfully donated several bags of clothing to Full Circle. If you wish to donate as well, please donate gently worn clothing or gently used goods to both NOVA and Full Circle. All of these donations will benefit A Woman’s Place in order to help victims of domestic violence throughout Bucks County. Donations may include the following: shoes, boots, belts, handbags, purses, scarves, hats, gloves, jewelry, wall hangings, and small furniture. You can also support these victims by signing up for NOVA and Full Circle through Key Club!
