Want to work with a team of dedicated individuals and support a good cause? Help keep materials out of the landfill and make repairs more affordable? Community Forklift has the volunteer opportunity for you!
We are looking for able bodied volunteers to assist with donation pickups and small deconstruction projects. Donation pickups involve loading surplus building materials and furniture onto our trucks, sometimes under less than optimal conditions. Deconstruction project may involve use of hammers, pry bars, power drills, and sawzalls-depending on experience-for the removal of interior trim, flooring, doors, cabinets, and other nonstructural items. A strong back, the ability to lift 40 lbs on a repetitive basis, steel toed boots, and a sunny disposition are required; construction experience for deconstruction is preferred.
