Corporate Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteers are the key to fulfilling our mission of reusing donated furniture to renew the lives of those who have experienced homelessness as a result of disaster or crisis. On average, we have 75-100 weekly volunteers.
Scheduling Your Volunteer Opportunity: Connect with our Community Engagement Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note: you MUST receive an email from our Community Engagement Coordinator confirming a date and time before coming to The Green Chair Project.
Shifts/Hours Available: We reserve Wednesdays from 2 - 4 pm and Fridays from 10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. for corporate volunteers.
Volunteer Capacity: Maximum of 12-25 volunteers per shift; minimum of 4.
Volunteer Activities: Activities are varied and include tasks such as cleaning and organizing the client showroom, processing and sorting donations, and cleaning, repairing, and painting furniture. Volunteers often participate in large cleaning and reorganizing projects and assist with our re-direct program where we sort items to donate to other nonprofits. We also offer landscaping/gardening activities.
Additional Forms of Participation: Your company may have a program that matches volunteer manpower hours with a monetary gift. Please check with your HR office to see if this is offered at your company!
We accept financial contributions to offset the operational expenses in maintaining our facility to offer quality, affordable furniture to families in need. It costs $1,100 to serve an average family of four.
Collection Drives: Prior to your designated corporate volunteer day, consider asking employees to participate in a collection drive to bring useful and essential household items to The Green Chair Project. Please see the bottom of this page for Collection Drive ideas.
Parking: We offer convenient parking right in front our building. Overflow parking is in the rear of the building.
