Spend the morning helping out at the Good Sammy's warehouse sorting through donated items before they are distributed to Opshops all around Perth.
Good Sammy Op shops collect and sell goods generously donated by the community, and all profits are reinvested to create employment opportunities for West Australian people living with disability.
Within our retail stores we provide a number of those opportunities. Volunteers and support staff work alongside people living with disabilities guiding and supporting their daily working tasks and shaping their pathway to independence. Our customers help our employees by donating, interacting and buying.
Date: Tuesday 22nd June
Time: Meet at Guild Volunteering at 9:00. We will then travel together to the Wearhouse and volunteer from 9:30 - 1:30 (with a 20 min lunch break). We will return to UWA no later than 2:00 pm. If you would like to meet onsite meet at 9:30 at: 33-35 Bannister Road, Canning Vale WA 6155.
Activity: Some tasks include: sorting donations, assessing quality of donations, packing shipments, and loading trucks.
What to wear: Volunteers must wear fully enclosed in footwear (e.g. runners, sneakers, boots, steel caps). For safety reasons high heeled shoes, ballet shoes and slippers are not suitable. Be prepared they may get dirty. Jeans are typically suitable attire.
