An exciting new opportunity for Mulwala - the FIRST EVER VINNIES POP-UP SHOP!
The St Vincent de Paul Society operates approximately 250 shops and distribution centres across NSW which are run by a dedicated group of staff and volunteers. Shoppers can choose from a variety of pre-loved items that include clothing accessories, furniture, books, music household items and bric-a-brac.
Vinnies shops provide material assistance to people and families experiencing disadvantage in local communities. During the last year nearly $2 million dollars was provided to families in need. These goods included clothing, furniture, kitchenware, beds, manchester and blankets.
Monies raised in Vinnies shops are also used to fund St Vincent de Paul Society Programs in local communities, such as homelessness services, refuges, special works, youth work and home visitations.
We are currently seeking volunteers who live in Mulwala or the surrounding areas that could come and help us in the shop. The pop-up shop will open from 9am - 5pm, Monday to Saturday. We would be happy if you can come for a full day or even a morning or afternoon.
We are looking for people who are: • Friendly and can offer a smile and a welcome to our customers and provide them with an enjoyable retail experience whilst shopping in our store; and • Compassionate and have a non-judgmental attitude with a good and kind heart. Volunteering for Vinnies is a rich and rewarding experience. As a volunteer, you’ll benefit from: • The satisfaction of helping others • Sharing your skills and teaching others • Learning new skills • The sense of community and friendship.
We will train and mentor you at every stage. You will meet some wonderful people and you will feel a great sense of achievement when you have made a real difference to somebody’s life.
We very much look forward to meeting you and you can be assured of a warm and friendly welcome from our team - please come and join us!
