The program
Red Cross Shops sell new and donated clothes, accessories and homewares to raise funds to help people in need. Each year, we rescue 450 tonnes of clothing from landfill, give opportunities to 5000 volunteers, and generate funds to help Red Cross support vulnerable people in Australia and around the world. The proceeds from the sale of items support the vital everyday work of Red Cross, providing relief in times of crisis and care where it's needed most.

The opportunity
Our St Mary's Red Cross shop is looking for enthusiastic volunteers to assist with store operations. We are currently seeking a volunteer to assist with the collection and transportation of donations between our stores. The position plays an important role in helping us ensure that adequate stock levels are maintained.

Red Cross is an inclusive organisation and welcomes applicants from diverse backgrounds and experience levels, so if you have some spare time and want to give back to your community we’d love to hear from you.

The impact
As a Red Cross Shops volunteer, you’ll develop valuable retail logistic skills while helping us raise funds to bring care and comfort where it’s needed most. Red Cross will ensure you have training, ongoing support and access to other opportunities within the world’s largest humanitarian network.
