Pop Up Stall Assistant

Provide crucial short term daily support for our charity stall team

Project Details

What we need

  • Join us for a briefing call to learn about our organisation and the charity stall
  • Help us to organise the stock/merches
  • Offer customer service support
  • Help with the cashier
  • Handle customers' queries
  • Volunteers can take up more than one time slot per day

Background

We are looking for volunteers to offer support for our charity stall that sells Kindness Matters merch and coffee beans, offering fundraising and employment opportunities.

What we have

The support of the volunteers is especially significant for us to run our social enterprise and support more people experiencing homelessness. The volunteer will help us in connecting and building relationships with the West Kowloon community. We will provide back end support and trainings for the volunteers.

Why this is important

The charity stall provides employment opportunities for our friends with homeless experience and also the profit will help support our services. At ImpactHK, we have a vision for an inclusive Hong Kong where everyone has a safe place to call home and cares for their neighbour. We work with people experiencing homelessness to help them settle in a safe home, restore their mental and physical wellbeing, build their self-esteem and social capital and discover their purpose. To do this we: (a) Provide direct holistic support to people experiencing homelessness and empower them to transform their lives (b) Build community connections to increase collective understanding of homelessness and empathy towards the people who experience it (c) Stand up with those who lack the basic human right to safe housing

What we do

We work with people experiencing homelessness to help them settle in a safe home, restore their mental and physical wellbeing, build their self-esteem, increase their social capital and discover their purpose. To do this we provide direct holistic support to people experiencing homelessness and empower them to transform their lives. At the same time we build community connections to increase collective understanding of homelessness and empathy towards the people who experience it. We also address the systemic issues that cause the housing crisis and stand up with those who lack the basic human right to safe housing.
