Household Goods Sorting | Sorter (14+)
7 of 9

Whether you're an organization connoisseur or just enjoy working with your hands without having to lift anything heavy, sorting is the right fit for you. Organize household goods for people transitioning from homelessness by sorting donations, packing starter kits, making dish or glass sets, testing appliances or lamps, or inspecting linens. Example activities are testing appliances, making sets of dishes, and checking linens for stains. 

  • Open to 14+ | 14-15 year old volunteers must be accompanied by a parent/guardian, who also must sign up.
  • If under 18, remind your parent/guardian to accept the waiver that will be emailed to them after registering.
  • For more info, visit Volunteer FAQs.
  • Still have questions? Contact Amanda Wolfe, Volunteer Coordinator, at amanda@newlifefb.org.

What is sorting?

Gently-used household goods are donated for people transitioning out of homelessness. Every household item that is donated is carefully checked by our volunteers, whether it be sheets, lamps, kitchen appliances, blankets, or kitchenware. Volunteers sort through these donations to determine what’s appropriate and pack them into kits for clients.
