There is lots of parking and it only takes a short time to fill out the forms that are needed to get you started. Naomi, the lovely store manager, will help you get sorted. If you can't make it into the store right away, you can email her at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions regarding volunteering.
It took Naomi and her team a bit of time to gather all their wonderful stock, then just a couple of days to get everything shelved and hung. You really need to see how beautiful this store is with all the lovely brightness and colour. And there is no shortage of things to browse through.
Even if you are unable to volunteer, there is plenty of shopping to be had. Are you looking for men's shirts? There is a lovely selection. Children's clothes come in a range of sizes, colours and textures for those little ones who don't take long to become bigger ones. Maybe you are looking for something to keep you warmer on these chilly mornings. Scarves, pashminas, vests, hoodies, jackets, and jumpers are all in this season.
If you are not aware, the Vincent de Paul Society helps those who need a hand up. Maybe you know someone in need. You can check out their website at qld.vinnies.org.au and get the information you need.
When you make purchases, you are helping out those same people in need.
Maybe you are looking for an escape out of the house. Maybe you just want to chat with others while you spend a few hours donating your time and giving back to this wonderful community that gives so much to our society. This could be the opportunity you are looking for.
