The program

Red Cross Shops sell new and donated clothes, accessories and homewares to raise funds to help people in need. Each year, we rescue 450 tonnes of clothing from landfill, give opportunities to 5000 volunteers, 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's needed most.

The opportunity

Our Red Cross Retail Distribution centre is looking for enthusiastic volunteers to assist with warehouse operations.

We are currently seeking volunteers to assist with the delivery and collection of stocks and donations accurately and efficiently to meet stores’ needs and requirements and help to ensure that donations collected from businesses are conducted promptly and professionally.

You will also have the ability to drive a manual 1.5 tonne van.

Own transport is essential as our warehouse is not accessible by public transport.

A minimum commitment of just 1 day a week is required to volunteer. No experience is necessary and all training is provided.

Red Cross is an inclusive organisation and welcomes applicants from diverse backgrounds and experience levels, so if you have some spare time and want to give back to your community we’d love to hear from you.

The impact

As a retail warehouse volunteer, you’ll develop valuable retail logistics skills while helping us raise funds to bring care and comfort where it’s needed most. Red Cross will ensure you have training, ongoing support and access to other opportunities within the world’s largest humanitarian network.
