Donated Essential Items Sorter / Packer

  • VO65638


Description

We'd like you to come to our sorting center at 2 Chanonry Road North, Elgin, IV30 6NB, to help us sort donated goods and pack them in to boxed which will be sent to refugees in camps across Europe. Donating stock means saving items of clothing and footwear, blankets, hats, etc, and putting aside items that can be used to raise funds in a jumble sale. The packing of the boxes has to be done in a specific way, as each box has a specific purpose, e.g, the items will be for a small child, or a medium sized man.
