ORGANIZATION: Wheel It Forward

Image_202203140739

VOLUNTEER POSITIONS AVAILABLE:

  • ANSWER PHONES/ADMINISTRATIVE WORK
  • CLEANING DONATED EQUIPMENT/INVENTORY
  • DELIVER/PICKUP ITEMS

We are looking for volunteers to work 2 or 3 hour shifts - responding to reach-outs from people who need to borrow equipment from our library and from people who would like to donate equipment.

The ability to communicate well, and basic use of computers and technology is important. Some of our volunteers have described working in our warehouse as "addictive". People reach out to us who need help and we almost never need to say no.

Wheel It Forward meaningfully improves the quality of peoples lives, measurably saves people and society money, and what we are doing is green - keeping tons of useable equipment out of landfills.

About Wheel It Forward

Location:

48 Union Street, Stamford, CT 06906, US

Mission Statement

Mission To create, operate and template a branded lending library where people who need DME can borrow it, and where people who have lightly used DME can conveniently donate it to benefit others, and the environment. Vision To change the way people from all backgrounds think about the availability, use, and reuse of DME - thereby improving quality of life, saving hundreds of millions of dollars, and keeping billions of pounds of DME out of landfills.

Description

Launched in October 2020. Over 400 people reach out to us every month to either borrow or donate equipment. We lend out over $2000 worth of equipment every day. We are just scratching the surface. We meaningfully improve the quality of people's lives, measurably save people and society money, and we help save the planet by keeping perfectly useable equipment out of landfills.

We need your help :)
