Working in the shop is a fun and lively way to become involved in the community. You will meet new people and learn new skills, forming personal bonds within a supportive team. Volunteers work 3-hour shifts in the store, either in the morning or afternoon, every other week.
Volunteers are actively making contributions to the health and well-being of local women and children through the charitable work of the Women's Exchange. Since our founding in 1962, we have contributed over $1 million to more than 80 organizations that benefit women and children in the greater local community.
The Fairfield Women's Exchange is a member of the National Federation of Woman's Exchanges. The first Exchange started in 1832 to provide women with a means of earning a living from their handiwork. We provide a marketplace for artisans to sell their wares and are able to support the community all thanks to the volunteers who run the Exchange.
