The Champion Program at Cradles to Crayons is a way for adults to give back and volunteer their time on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. We are looking for Clothing sort Champions to help us process through clothing so we can eventually get quality clothing out to children living in low income and homeless situations.
Clothing Sort Champions lead a group of volunteers averaging from 10-25 volunteers. The goal of the station is to sort clothing into large rolling bins based on type; i.e. boys’ pants, girls’ shirts, girls’ infant clothing, etc.
As a Champion Volunteer Leader you will:
-Receive a complete Giving Factory station training
-Lead or co-lead volunteer groups of 5-25 people
-Enjoy working with diverse volunteer groups
-Help local children in need
- Give a short station orientation to the volunteers assigned to your station
- Answer station specific questions people have
- Keep volunteers supplied with product they need in the station
- Keep track of inventory
- Provide a quality volunteer experience
- Make sure the station is clean and ready to go before and after your shift
Excellent candidates can commit to a weekly or bi-weekly shift (2.5 hours each) for ideally 6 months. Shifts can be canceled upon notice. We are especially interested in volunteers that can come in for any of the following shifts.
-Tuesdays (1:15-3:45 pm)
-Fridays (9:45-12:15 am) or (1:15-3:45 pm)
-Saturdays (1:15-3:45 pm)
-Sundays (9:45-12:15) or (1:15-3:45pm) *Occurs only once a month
-Tuesday evenings (3:15-5:45pm) or (6:15-8:45pm) *Occurs roughly twice a month in the Fall-Spring
If you can help out weekly or bi-weekly on one of the shifts above that would be ideal. If this sounds like something you want to be a part of the next step is to schedule a time with me to come in to start your first shift as a champion. You can start at any time.
For the first couple of shifts you will help someone who is leading the station. After a couple of times coming in, when you are comfortable with the station, then you will be free to run the station on your own. I look forward to scheduling your first champion shift into the warehouse. Please let me know if you have any question or need more information.
