COMMUNITY CHAMPIONS
Are you someone who is well connected within your community? Someone who’s not shy to ask others to help? We’re looking for individuals who want to help people living in impossible circumstances in a very tangible way. As a community champion you can volunteer as little or as much time as you can. The work varies depending on what is happening in your neighbourhood and may include:

 

• Leading appeals for specific new or preloved goods within your community. Whether that’s your street, your neighbourhood, your synagogue, mosque, church, or your children’s school, you will help spread the word and rally others to donate items which Goods For Good can redistribute to people who are in need
• From time to time, collecting goods from your community and bringing them to our facility in Watford
• Sharing information provided by Goods For Good via your social media channels and WhatsApp groups
