About this opportunity

Carevan needs assistance with delivery of goods and donations (such as hampers of fruit, veg and other food items or blankets and clothing) in and around Blacktown LGA)

  • Items need to be delivered to the evening meal service on Tuesday ( approx 6:30) and/or pick up donations though the week and deliver to our storage areas. -Tasks/ pickups will vary from week to week, but principally involve Tuesdays but may include other days depending on the task
  • We require assistance short term also with pick up and delivery of hampers from OzHarvest in Alexandria to Lalor Park ( for the next 7 weeks) SKILLS:
  • you need to be a nice person!
  • A licensed driver,
  • preferably with your own vehicle (we have a van and can be used but it is used for multiple tasks and likely not to be available)
  • lifting is required ( small boxes/ hampers) repetitive lifting rather than heavy
  • Flexibility in time and availability, principally Tuesdays Carevan is run by dedicated volunteers, who all work full time and the logistics of collection and delivery of the necessary supplies is a weekly issue. Your assistance with this easy but time consuming task, would be truly invaluable. You can find Carevan Blacktown on the web at carevanblacktown.org.au or on facebook. We'd love to talk with you and discuss any possibility of assistance.
