Sand Dollar Shops
Our Sand Dollar Shops are responsible for a majority of the funds brought into NOSC. Every purchase made gives back to children, hospitals, veterans, and many other people in community. We hope every item you take home reminds you that you helped your neighbor that day. From us, for them - thank you!

There are many ways to volunteer with the Sand Dollar Shops
Working a day shift
Training takes place for 2-3 shifts and is conducted one-on-one or in small groups. You don't have to work alone, you are welcome to bring a buddy to your shift. Partial shifts can be arranged if you can't commit to an entire shift.
The Sand Dollar Shops have the occasional evening and weekend events. There are special projects to be worked on, inventories to be conducted, and several other ways to help the store if you're unable to work a typical shift.
