SHOP SMARTER, EAT HEALTHIER AND SAVE MONEY AT THE CO-OP – BECOME A VOLUNTEER!
23rd July, 2013

The Co-op wouldn’t be what it is today without the efforts of many enthusiastic volunteers over the years.  We are always so grateful and appreciative of the time people put into helping out in the shop and at Cleaning Bees.  Our shop is an incredibly busy and dynamic place, and we can always use some extra help to ensure things run smoothly and efficiently.

We are about to embark on a new system of training volunteers, so that when you come in for a shift you know exactly what to do and how to do it.  We will be holding volunteer induction and training evenings twice a month from May onwards.  These evenings will provide an opportunity for new volunteers to learn all about how they can help out in the shop, but we’d also love to further the training of our more experienced volunteers so that they can work with as much self-direction as possible.

  • On a day to day basis volunteers help with:Keeping the Co-op clean, tidy and organised
  • Looking after the garden and outside the store
  • Helping customers get their shopping to their car
  • General filling and keeping everything topped up

But we’d also like to know if you have any special skills you could offer, such as;

  • Handy person
  • Electrician
  • Plumber
  • Desktop publishing
  • Research
  • Newsletter contributions
  • PR, marketing, promotion
  • Graphic design
  • Filing / office skills
  • Events co-ordination
  • Gardening
  • Sewing
  • Cooking – for staff meetings and events
  • Community classes that might benefit staff (eg. Yoga, pilates, tai chi)
  • Screen printing

In exchange for only 4 hours volunteer work in a calendar month, you can receive an extra 20% off your shopping up to a total of $250.

Interested in getting involved? Speak to a staff member, or contact volunteers@bmfoodcoop.org.au
