Do you have a week day free? If so why not bring a friend and join the Turning Points volunteer family and help in the laundry area.
We need 6 very special volunteers who can receive, wash, dry, fold and re-bag client clothing. Additionally you must keep the laundry area clean and orderly while making sure that all laundry is done before next day pick up. As a laundry volunteer you work closely with the Open Door Intake volunteers under the supervision of the Open Door Manager. This is one of the few volunteer opportunity where you set the pace and enjoy the down time with a good book, music or conversation. We have a fully equipped laundry facility which makes this a friendly area to volunteer.
