What it is to be a Helping Hands Volunteer?
Are you wanting to give your time and heart to a great organization? People volunteer at Helping Hands for a variety of reasons. For the married couple who wants to give their time to a charity, to the widow who lost a spouse and needs to fill a void or make a friend. Making friends and becoming part of a large family is easily done at Helping Hands! You will develop friendships that will last a lifetime and your generous donation of time helps us reduce employee cost thereby allowing for a greater percentage of our proceeds to be put back into the community.
We have more 145 volunteers and we need each and every one of them. While we have a great group of volunteers we are always in need of additional volunteers. Additional volunteers allow us to not only save more money in employee cost, but also allow us to display and sell greater amounts of products through our thrift store. In a nut shell, the more volunteers we have, the more effectively we are able to run our business, which means greater amounts of money available to provide for this community. Helping Hands was founded by volunteers and is still supervised by a volunteer board, which consist of representatives of each of the 23 partner churches.
We are looking for men and women who can help in the furniture department, in receiving, in the book department, on the sales floor, in fabrics and jewelry and at the register; either cashiering or packing purchases. We need volunteers for all areas of the store, and we offer low maintenance jobs for those who canít stand for long periods of time. If you would like to volunteer, we have something here for you! Just ask our volunteers who have been giving of their time and talents for more than 20 years.
Helping Hands is not just a place to give your time. Itís a family; a group of people with different talents, strengths and reasons for volunteering but we do all share one goal. Our goal is to help make life better for everyone in Benton County who need our help. Helping Hands was founded by volunteers and we would not be the company we are today without them.
