    Inova Fairfax Medical Campus Treasure Troves are located in McLean, Annandale and Springfield, VA. These stores resell donated items and consigned merchandise. Proceeds from the stores directly benefit Inova Fairfax Medical Campus programs and services.

    We can almost always use the help of high schoolers at our Treasure Troves. Ages 16 through 17 Responsibilities include assisting customers with selections, receiving and processing donations and consignments, handling sales, creating displays and performing other typical retail tasks. Because all proceeds from store sales are donated to the hospital, working in these locations qualifies as charitable community service. There are other benefits: Students thinking about business, marketing or merchandising careers learn special skills related to retail activities and gain experience in that area. If you choose a Treasure Trove store, you do not need to attend the four-hour entry-level training required to work in the hospital or other clinical settings. You may be able to work on a project basis if you need only a few hours to meet a school requirement. The shops offer more evening and weekend opportunities than hospital service does.
