Description


WE NEED YOU:

We literally have TONS of medical supplies to be sorted for our partner hospitals and clinics abroad, so we're having a Super Saturday Sort. This is an opportunity to process many boxes of supplies and get a head start on orders in 2018! The more we sort, the more people we help!

Volunteers will be checking expiration dates on all supplies donated and sorting into bins around the room. A medical background is not required, as this is set up to be a quick, easy sort. We'll start each shift with a hands-on training, then get to work!


Volunteers requirements:

- Age 13 or older

- Able to lift up to 30 lbs.

-Able to stand/walk/move 2 hours at a time

- All youth groups need to be accompanied by 1 adult per every 5 youth (under age 18)


What to expect:

- The sorting space is heated. We recommend dressing in layers as you will be up and moving

- Bottled water will be provided

- A breaktime will be offered mid-way through each volunteer shift

- Be ready to get some great work done and improve healthcare around the world


Please note: This opportuntity will be held at the old Springfield Gymnastics Center (SGC) just off West Wabash Avenue. This space has been generously donated for this special sort so that we can accommodate a greater number of volunteers at one time.


FYI - In addition to our Super-Sort Saturday, we also offer weekly volunteer shifts at our main warehouse on the Northeast side of Springfield. Please visit www.mission-outreach.org to view our weekly volunteer opportunities and to learn more about Mission Outreach
