HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

We rely on hundreds of volunteers to help receive goods from donors and then distribute them to people in need. Every year, our volunteers help 7000 people from 2500 homes. 

DESCRIPTION

We need furniture movers to help move donated furniture into our showroom and/or into our client's vehicles.


ITEMS NEEDED

Closed toe shoes (like sneakers).  Strength and dexterity to move sometimes large and/or heavy furniture. Furniture movers work together to move larger items and use hand trucks and carts. 


SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

Volunteers must be willing to commit at least 30 hours their first year. Most volunteer shifts are 3 hours, so this is about 1 shift per month for a year or one shift a week for a few months.
