Be a Red Cross Shop volunteer

Effort: Medium | Time: 4–15 hours per week


Red Cross Shops sell new and pre-loved clothes, accessories and homewares to raise funds to help people experiencing crisis and hardship. Thanks to the help of 5000 volunteers, each year we help divert over 6 million items of clothing from landfill and ensure Red Cross teams are on the ground, 365 days a year, providing care and support where it’s needed most.
