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 5,000 volunteers, each year we help divert millions of items from landfill and ensure Red Cross teams are on the ground, 365 days a year, providing care and support where it’s needed most.
