The Kiwanis Club of Carefree Seeking Marketplace volunteers to make a community difference


CAREFREE/CAVE CREEK/N. SCOTTSDALE – The Kiwanis Club of Carefree, a non-profit organization, is seeking volunteer assistance for the Kiwanis Marketplace Thrift Store, 6535 E. Cave Creek Road, in Cave Creek. 

Approaching its second year of operation, the Kiwanis Marketplace is in need of additional volunteers to help staff the popular destination. Store sale profits support Kiwanis Club of Carefree scholarships and other programs for children of the north Valley.

“As the snowbirds head back to their summer homes, our volunteer force becomes depleted while our sales continue to increase. Summer is a perfect time to get to know our organization and become involved with the Marketplace. We welcome volunteers in all areas,” said Craig Lemke, General Manager.

The Kiwanis Marketplace is open from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday.
Interested parties can apply at the store or call Craig Lemke, General Manager, at 480-488-7169.

Volunteers are asked to contribute three-four hours each week or every other week with flexible scheduling. Opportunities

The Kiwanis Marketplace offers rewarding and gratifying experiences for those who become part of the team. The valuable volunteer assistance allows the Kiwanis Club of Carefree Benefit Foundation to continue its mission to help children recognize and develop their potential. 
Ranked one of the top ten largest Kiwanis clubs in the world, the Carefree organization has nearly 200 members. For more information on the Kiwanis Club of Carefree visit KiwanisCarefree.org or call 480-488-8400.
