Be a retail shop volunteer

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

Red Cross Shops sell new and donated clothes, accessories and homewares to raise funds to help people in need. Thanks to the help of 5000 volunteers, each year we rescue 450 tonnes of clothing from landfill 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 is needed most.
