The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
A WONDERFUL OPPORTUNITY AWAITS YOU AT THE TEN THOUSAND VILLAGES STORE!
If you love unique hand-made jewelry, ceramics, baskets, or musical instruments-- to name a few of the shop's products--you will love working at Ten Thousand Villages.
Not only will you be a sales associate explaining the materials and countries of origin but also helping to raise the economy and self-esteem of artisans in those developing countries. Don't worry, you will be carefully trained through videos and print about these artisans and about how to use the register.
During the holidays you may unpack new stock or help take inventory so the Store Manager will know what to re-order. You will also have the opportunity to work off site at special selling events to various organizations.
You will be asked to work at least two three-hour shifts of your choice a month and will gain the satisfaction of meeting wonderful people and helping others.
Right now we especially need volunteers during the hours of 4:00-7:00 PM on Thurs and 4-8 PM on Fri and Sat.
Volunteers are offered a 20% discount on products they wish to purchase from the store. At times Bonus discounts are offered to volunteers working 12 hours a month or more.
Call the store for the next training session--you won't regret it!
