Over 100 volunteers keep the Tree of Life Food Pantry and Turnstyle Thrift Shop running.

The Turnstyle is one of the premiere shopping venues in Blue Hill. The stock is well chosen, organized and pleasantly displayed.

If you enjoy clothes and accessories and would like to join the many volunteers in the thrift shop, please stop by during business hours (Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday from 9 am to 3 pm) or call 374-2891.

Activities include:

– sorting & preparing clothes for sale

– creating displays

– stocking shelves & racks

– cashiering



The pantry could not provide the amazing selection of food without the efforts of dozens of volunteers.  Help is always needed unloading the Good Shepherd delivery every other Tuesday and helping on distribution day every Thursday.

There are many options for helping:

–  client check-in

– restocking shelves

– bagging bulk items

– helping clients carry out their food boxes

– cleaning

– tea drinking and eating Deb’s homemade cookies. 

Please drop in on Thursday between 8 am and 3 pm or call 374-2900.
