Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Housing Works is powered by a vibrant community of volunteers who lend their time, dedication, and passion to many different roles within our organization. For more information about our mission and programs, visit our website: www.housingworks.org
Join our team of volunteer Bookstore Sales Associates!
Our bookstore serves many purposes for the community and with that, our volunteers enjoy a wide variety of responsibilities. Bookstore Sales Associates price and shelve books, run the register, take donations, maintain sections and displays, and help customers. You act as the friendly face that keeps customers coming back and supporting the Housing Works mission!
Bookstore Volunteers are frequently asked to support us at exciting special events held at the Bookstore, such as concerts, book launches, and trivia events.
