Bread pick-up and delivery
We need someone to pick-up bread donations from a bakery and deliver it to particular Servants houses. This opportunity would be ideal for a community group, like a church or school group. You would need a car and current driver’s licence and be available one evening a week (or less, depending on the group’s rostering!) Contributing to the Servants community in this way helps keep operating costs down and gives residents fresh, tasty bread for their breakfasts!
Get a group of friends, school mates or colleagues together, don some gloves and arm yourselves with Jiff, Windex and Ajax! Tackling bathrooms, kitchens, hallways or loungerooms together eases the House Managers’ load tremendously and serves our residents directly. We promise it’s more fun together!
Are you a handy-person? Do you know people who are? There are always bigger projects that can be tackled when a group of people volunteer a Saturday morning, for example, to wash those hard-to-reach windows, set up a garden bed or doing tip runs. This could also be a meaningful corporate volunteer opportunity, where you develop team culture and enjoy a sense of fulfilment.
Who doesn’t love a chat around the barbie? Saturday evenings are a perfect opportunity to connect with our residents whilst turning snags and prepping salads. BBQs are hosted by community groups on a monthly basis. Get a group together and share in the lives of our residents – it will be a win-win, we guarantee.
Maybe you have skills in a particular area and would be happy to offer your services to a group of residents? It may be a workshop (like the cooking class run by OzHarvest) or a service (like the haircuts given by the Streets Barber, or financial counselling sessions). If you have expertise in any of the following fields and are interested in contributing to Servants, please get in touch!
- Financial analysts
- Computer technicians
- Property developers
- Trades e.g. electricians, carpentry, tilers, plumbers etc.
