Mailings Assistant

  • VO64270


Description

As a small charity, we print our appeals for donations in-house. We rely on volunteers to help us with our mailings seven times a year when we send out postal appeals to our supporters. We require volunteers to join our small mailings volunteer team to help to fill envelopes with folded letters and inserts before sealing. Mailings volunteers help to sort and keep tidy all letters and packages for courier pick up.
