Clean and Size Shoes for Children in Need
3 people are interested
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. A Champion Volunteer Leader in the shoe station helps us process donated footwear that we can give out in care packages to children in need.
The shoe station champion will give a group of volunteers a short orientation explaining what to do in the station and what our quality standards are. Then during the shift they will help answer questions the volunteer has about the station, keep track of our inventory, and help restock our shopping area with quality shoes.
As a Champion Volunteer Leader you will:
-Receive a complete Giving Factory station training
-Lead or co-lead volunteer groups of 5-20 people
-Enjoy working with diverse volunteer groups
-Help provide items to 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.
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.

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.
We'll work with your schedule.
