Clothing Department Support

Help us repackage, sort and manage inventory in our Clothing Department

Project Details

What we need

  • Receive incoming shipments of clothing
  • Sort donations into different categories
  • Select stock for both international shipments and local distribution
  • Manage inventory
  • Occasionally manage casual volunteers
  • Our full time staff are all volunteers, so your support in the Clothing Department will be highly appreciated and crucially required. A minimum attendance of 2 days a week is required

Background

The Clothing department sorts and packs clothing such as shirts, pants, coats, shoes and scarves so that they can be distributed across the globe according to need.

What we have

Training, as well as all the relevant equipment will be provided. Full-day volunteers are also more than welcome to get lunch!

Why this is important

The Clothing Department makes sure that distributed clothing is appropriate for local weather, be it the harsh winters of Mongolia, or the unforgiving summers in Mali.

What we do

Crossroads Foundation is a Hong Kong based, non-profit organisation serving global need. We believe that, in a broken world that sees too much suffering, we should do all we can to link those who are in need with those who can provide help. So we provide an intersection, literally a crossroads, to bring both together. • Global Distribution: This distributes Hong Kong's quality excess goods as needed, internationally and locally. It provides a crossroads between need and supply. • Global X-perience: This offers simulated x-periences of global need. It provides a crossroads between the lifestyles of the rich and poor. • Global Handicrafts: This sells fair trade goods from people in poverty. It is a crossroads between those needing a fair income and those with buying power. • Global Hand: This provides a 'matching' website for public- private partnerships. It is a crossroads between for-profit and non-profit organizations who wish to address global need.
