Household Goods

  • 3 people are interested

Work with individual client or family to help them select the large and small items that they need. Language skills in Portuguese, Spanish a plus.

Long or short term commitments are possible, though regular commitment is expected for the duration on a weekly or monthly basis. Great opportunity for teens and adults.

COVID SAFETY: Household Goods volunteers now use a live video call (Zoom) to help clients safely select their items when they arrive at Household Goods for their scheduled appointment. Clients receive a sanitized tablet to use during the call and remain in their vehicle while the volunteer walks around the showroom with a second tablet, sharing via live video everything that is available. The tablet can be held to provide a closer view of the items, and volunteers are able to describe and discuss the items, creating a personalized, live shopping experience.
