The Australian Red Cross is looking for more volunteers to join retail teams across Victoria.
Red Cross Shops sell new and donated clothes, accessories and homewares to raise funds to help people in need. Each year, the Red Cross rescues approximately 450 tonnes of clothing from landfill, provides rewarding opportunities to around 5000 volunteers, and generates funds to help the Red Cross support vulnerable people in Australia and around the world.
The proceeds from the sale of items support the vital everyday work of the Red Cross, providing relief in times of crisis and care where it’s needed most.
Become a Red Cross Shop volunteer and give back to your community in a rewarding and enjoyable way.
Benefits of volunteering at a Red Cross Shop:
Meet great people and build new relationships through providing customer service, connecting with your community and liaising with other volunteers and staff
Learn new skills in retail, fashion and design as well as add experience to your resume
Get creative by designing window and visual merchandising displays
Help reduce the impact on the environment by sorting donations to be sold in store
Keep busy with a rewarding purpose through processing sales and pricing products
Contribute your skills and help raise money for those in need
Receive great discounts on products at Red Cross Shops, as well as get first dibs on items when sorting donations
Stores have been operating at a low staff capacity due to the festive season and pandemic-related issues, so any help would be greatly appreciated, even for one day per week, per fortnight or per month.
Red Cross Shops in various locations around the state are welcoming enthusiastic volunteers now. Visit www.redcross.org.au or email email@example.com to apply or for more information.
