WANTED: Eager folks who want to help us build a stronger community!
Are you looking to share your skills, meet new people and help make the world just a little bit better? Well look no further! At Squamish ReBuild an extra hand is always welcome and whether it's getting involved with our Board of Directors or helping out with a variety of jobs around the store, we'd be thrilled to have you!
Want to volunteer at the store?
Volunteer projects vary from day to day but usually involve such things as:
- loading and unloading materials from vehicles
- weighing, sorting, cleaning and measuring donated product
- building shelves and racking systems for improved product display
- tidying the retail areas, sweeping, painting, pulling nails from donated lumber
- loading up scrap metal for recycling at the scrap metal yard
- basic data entry, social media and website updates
Volunteers are welcome to come help out 7 days a week between the hours of 10am- 4pm.
Please note: if possible it is helpful to let us know a day ahead of time that you plan on coming by to help at the store so that we can have work ready and organized for you.
We recommend dressing for the weather as often the work is outside. Please wear sturdy footwear and clothing that you don't mind getting dirty. If you have your own work gloves, bring them along. We do have extras but it's usually nicer if they fit you properly.
Interested in joining our Board of Directors?
We're always happy to welcome a new face to our wonderful team of Board Members. Skills and knowledge regarding the building industry, marketing and social media, running businesses, social enterprises or non-profits are particularly useful, but mostly it's about having enthusiasm and a passion for community and waste reduction. At a minimum, the time commitment requires attending Board Meetings held every two months (with a break over both the summer and Christmas holidays). Further involvement is encouraged and always appreciated but is left up to each individual to decide for him/herself.
Yes, I want to volunteer! What's my first step?
If you'd like to join the Squamish ReBuild team, either as a board member, a store volunteer, or someone who helps with pick-ups, please fill out the Contact form with your name, email, phone number and a little bit about your wonderful self and we'll be in touch right away.
