About the volunteering opportunity

So far, ZeSaBo has distributed around 250,000 items a year to 391 registered recipients, who, according to their own information, have used them to provide for 26,758 fellow human beings in need or crisis. The numbers are already and will drastically increase due to the flood disaster.

In order to secure the unimaginable volume of donations and to stockpile them in such a way that we are always able to distribute them as needed, we need many helping hands to check, sort and store used goods.

Your Tasks

In the first step it is e.g. about freeing the clothes from the "garbage" and sorting out everything that is - unwashed - dirty - damaged - washed out - worn out - linty - strongly perfumed - with worn out elastics - with missing buttons - with broken zippers - with real animal hair fur elements or with personalized clothing (name tags or identification of a wearer).

The second step is article sorting and the last step is sizing and storage.

What's needed

For this volunteering opportunity, intermediate German skills are required.

Since everything is labelled and described in German, we consider a B2 language knowledge to be at least necessary.

We do not have any further prerequisite.

We always give an introduction to the work at the beginning and are always available for queries.

We focus on quality and not on quantity.
