SPCA Alexandra Op Shop needs volunteers
SPCA is on the lookout for more people to volunteer at SPCA’s Alexandra Op Shop and make a difference for animals in need.
SPCA Operations Coordinator Emily Kerr says the Op Shop has been closed since last year and SPCA is calling on the Alexandra community to help out.
“If you are interested in making a difference for animals in need, we have plenty of opportunities – in particular volunteering at our Op Shops,” she says.
“Our Alexandra Op Shop helps us raise valuable funds for the animals. All proceeds go to support SPCA and our Op Shops are a key link between SPCA and the community.”
Op Shop Volunteers help with customer service, sorting through pre-loved items that are donated to the op shop, steaming clothes, merchandising, and mending items that need minor repairs.
“We need volunteers who can carry out a variety of tasks in a retail environment and help continue with the work our Op Shop is doing in the Central Otago community.”
‘We have plenty of opportunities available so there’s something for everyone – whether it’s working on the cash register, tidying the shop floor, or steaming some of our donated clothes.”
Volunteers at SPCA need to be a minimum age of 16 years old and will be provided with training.
“In return, we will give you customer service and cash handling experience, a friendly work environment that will hone your retail skills, and the rewarding feeling of knowing you are helping animals in need,” Kerr says.
