Volunteer for Orange Sky!
We are so thrilled that Orange Sky is launching its van service in Christchurch.
Orange Sky is a not-for-profit organisation providing people experiencing homelessness with access to free laundry services, warm showers and genuine, non-judgmental conversation, across New Zealand.
They need volunteers to run their 2-hour shifts. See below for more information.
Volunteers have one of the most important jobs at Orange Sky – to connect with our friends through genuine and non-judgemental conversation. It might sound simple, but we’ve seen first-hand how a positive connection can impact a person’s life. In the hour that it takes to do a load of laundry, we sit down on our six orange chairs and have a chat – it’s a simple opportunity for every day New Zealanders to connect. You can help to make a difference by volunteering a few hours of your time each fortnight.
As a volunteer in our Christchurch service, the purpose of your role is to engage with all people during your Orange Sky shift and assist with driving the van, washing, shower operation and having genuine conversations. We have a laundry/shower van (hybrid) in Christchurch.
You must be over the age of 18 and we ask that you are able to commit to a minimum of 6 months.
You must have had 1 dose of an Approved COVID19 Vaccine and be able to provide evidence of this.
