What does volunteering involve?
You may be asked to sort donations, price goods, work on the till, and create window displays. If you have experience in other areas, tell the shop manager as it can often be put to use. Volunteers get to make new friends, become part of a team and learn new skills while raising money for charity. Being a volunteer need not interfere with your other commitments. Many shops ask for a regular commitment of a set number of hours per week that can work around your schedule.
