Please note that there are no Team Leaders for this opportunity, so you must be a returning volunteer and it's recommended you are comfortable working without guidance.
You choose your activity:
Repair and assemble furniture, both gently used and new. Some experience repairing, reupholstering, or woodworking is strongly advised, though there's no need to be an expert! Sometimes brand new furniture needs to be assembled too.
Grab your paintbrush! Paint furniture that's surface is too damaged to give to clients. Some experience painting furniture is recommended, but no need to be an expert!
- Must be 14+ - Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian, who also must sign up. Please do not sign up if there's not enough spots for both the child and parent/guardian.

Why do we need painters and repairers?
Most furniture and household goods we provide to clients are gently used. We turn away damaged furniture, but inevitably some minor repairs or paint are needed before we offer items to clients. This can include tightening hardware, gluing broken pieces, and more. We also receive disassembled furniture, both brand new from large donations and gently used from the community, that needs to be assembled prior to offering it to clients.
