Volunteer Collector

  • VO77679


Description

The role of the collector is to respond to requests from members of the public to collect tools they have to donate and to store them for the TWAM van to collect. We will normally ask you to collect with a maximum 25 mile radius from your home (although you can request a smaller area) and requests are matched based on postcodes.

There is considerable flexibility in this role timewise as collections can be made at any time which is agreed between you and the donor.

Typical tasks may include
Taking calls and emails from members of the public and arranging collection times
driving to collect tools from people and bringing them back to your storage area
Arranging collections from the TWAM vans

Organisation aims and objectives

The charitable work of Tools with a Mission is to collect unwanted tools, refurbish them, sort them into trade kits and send them across the world for livelihood creation. We send around 20 containers filled with over 300 tonnes of tools every year.
