Volunteer - Collections/ Deliveries

  • VO87463


Description

We offer various volunteering roles that requires commitment once a month. The immediate role is to collect donations from organisations in East Lothian who collect toiletries for us, drive them to our HQ in West Lothian then deliver bags of toiletries back to East Lothian to places that hold a Dignity Box. The Dignity Boxes are also refilled once a month and these are what is given to those in need. Anyone interested can visit our premises and have a chat about how we work before committing. Our current volunteers tell us the attraction in part is because they only have to commit to once a month. We would love you to join us.
