Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart." Elizabeth Andrew.
If you would like to volunteer your time to work at at the Op Shop, visit the shop and ask for an "Expression of Interest" form..
Fill the form out and give it to someone at the Op Shop, and the Volunteers Co-ordinator will contact you to arrange a time to show you around the shop and to discuss how you can be involved.
The Op Shop is run entirely by volunteers and is great example of what can be accomplished when people work together and give generously of their time.
What personal qualities make a good volunteer?
Volunteers need to be able to communicate well with a wide range of customers and fellow volunteers. They need to be able to work together in a team, acknowledging individual differences.
Problem solving and self management with an ability to plan and organise are desirable qualities in a volunteer.
What do volunteers gain by being involved in the Kendall Shop?
Many lifelong friendships are made at the Op Shop. People new to the area find that that it is a wonderful way to get to know others.
Volunteers get a huge sense of satisfaction and enjoyment by working to help the community. Volunteer work gives a warm sense of achievement because time freely given equates to benefit for others.
What kind of work would do volunteers do at the Op Shop?
There is a job to suit every person who works at the shop, from sorting clothing, cleaning and pricing donated goods such as kitchenware electrical items and glassware, using creativity to present items for sale attractively, to helping customers with their choices and actually selling at the front counter.
