Volunteers needed: Help the homeless with Mustard Tree
14 Dec 2021
Christmas is a season of giving, so there’s no better time to volunteer
Throughout December, homeless charity Mustard Tree are desperate for volunteers as their services become oversubscribed. Whether you’re free for one shift or several, help us deliver life changing assistance to Manchester's homeless community, from their headquarters in Ancoats in the run up to Christmas.
- Email Fran Muscatelli (email@example.com) or Harry Dwan (firstname.lastname@example.org) to sign up.
- Volunteer alongside the retail, warehouse, and logistics team to manage donations, sorting clothing, toys, games, and food, prepping them to be donated on to clients. It's like being a Christmas Elf without the mandatory uniform!
- Support our Food Club and Community Shop. This will require some interaction with Mustard Tree's clients, helping them to choose food items from the pantry, as well as giving assistance to the public with shopping and picking out furniture.
- Wednesday 15, Thursday 16, Friday 17, Monday 20, Tuesday 21, Wednesday 22, Thursday 23 and Friday 24 December.
