The success of Share the Dignity relies heavily on collaboration, team work and those who are willing to put their hand up to get the job done. As we continue to rapidly grow and the demand for our services remains strong, we are on the search for like-minded and passionate volunteers to support us in achieving our mission
But what do our volunteers do?
There are lots of roles within Share the Dignity but we initially recruit everyone as a Shero or Hero.
As a Shero you are vital to our core activity which is helping those that need access to Sanitary items receive them. We run 3 collection periods, April & August are our Sanitary Product collection months. December is our #itsinthebag collection.
April & August We usually start preparing the month prior to the collection period, we ask our Shero/Heroes to contact the businesses they are responsible for & confirm they are on board for this collection. We sort out a collection box with them
We set up the boxes so they are ready to go at the beginning of the month, we keep in contact with our businesses during collection periods and promptly help finalise the collection at the end of the month.
Once we have cleared the stock from the businesses we get to do the nicest bit which is delivering the stock to the charities that need it.
#itsinthebag collection. This collection runs for 2 weeks and you work in teams to collect & deliver handbags to local charities. it runs in a similar way to our April and August collections however we have fewer collection points.
Throughout the year we may have local events come up in your area & we may ask you to pick up an odd collection or possibly speak at an event but the choice is up to you.
Being a Shero can take as little or as much time as you have. During collection periods it can be as much as 3-5 hrs a week but in downtime it is less than an hour a week. We will always ask before each collection who is available, so if you only want to do #itsinthebag or April/August thats not an issue.
Does this sound like something you can enjoy and give some time to help with? If so please apply here today and someone will be in contact with you in the next 7-10days.
