A person's most useful asset is not a head full of knowledge, but a heart full of love, an ear ready to listen and a hand willing to help others.
So what does it mean to be an emergency mover? It means you will be contacted by text or email when we need to vacate a recipient. This often has to be strategic.
If you can carry boxes, move furniture, pack, organize or have handyman skills, you can be an emergency mover. We would also have a need for commercial drivers at times.
Everyone will not always be available to respond to the call. Because of this we need many volunteers that we can call on. Emergency movers can also be on call for planned moves as well. Join Us In Changing Lives.
A planned mover is basically the same as an emergency mover with out the short notice. If you want to volunteer for moving but can't do short notice, this is for you.
So why are planned movers needed? When a recipient has to vacate, they often have to go to temporary housing and many of their belongings have to go to storage. When they are able to move to permanent housing, we call on planned movers for help.
We also get larger donations such as furniture or appliances. We will also call on planned movers that are available to help us move items such as those.
If you want to volunteer but you don't want to help with moving, no problem. We have other areas that may be a better fit for you. You can help as much or as little as you want. Listed below are more options.
We receive various donations from clothing to appliances and furniture. If you can sort, organize, assist with donation intake or sell items on marketplace, this might be a fit for you.
We may need help at times sorting and organizing items that have been donated. Also, some items that get donated will be sold, so if you are good at selling things through marketplace or in other ways, we could use your help.
There are times when recipients vacate or move from temporary housing and they have an empty refrigerator .
When a recipient is in need of food, we need volunteers that can help get food together from food pantries or donations. The volunteer would also deliver the food to the recipient.
