Donations from hygiene supplies to bicycles and laptops affect their ability to be employed, their access to public services, and integration with the community. Volunteers will assist the Volunteer & Donations Coordinator with outreach, the intake and inventory of in-kind donations and the preparation/delivery of said goods to our clients. Volunteers will work with IRC Staff to identify what items clients need and strategize how to meet these needs with the Volunteer and Donations Coordinator. Volunteers will also assist in valuation of goods, tracking of distributions, and drafting reports to assure grant compliance regarding donation requirements. This position reports to the Volunteer and Donations Coordinator.

To have priority consideration for this position, please apply at the below URL by Friday, July 31, 2020 at 11:59 PM.
