The JBay Recycling Project in Pellsrus is looking for volunteers to assist them between 11:30 to 17:00 on Mondays.
Volunteers between the ages of 10 and 85, are needed to help set up the “shop” at 11:30.
This involves carrying boxes filled with stock, getting clothes on rails and unpacking toys and shoes.
Assistance is furthermore required to help the children waiting in line for their turn to hand in their recyclables and in return receive some “mula” which they can swop for toiletries, food, school supplies and clothes. Volunteers are also needed to help in the shop.
They can furthermore assist with weighing and sorting the recyclable material brought to the project by the children, as well as recording all recyclables and helping the children wash their hands.
Duties also include acting as a shop assistant for the children, handing out of food, registering children, filing of registration cards and stock taking at the end of the trading day.
The only qualifications that volunteers need are love in their hearts and a willingness to help. Volunteers can help either for the full duration or even just for an hour or two.
The JBay Recycling Project operates from the CMR Building next to the Madiba Bay Crèche in Sarah Baartman Avenue every Monday from 12:30.
