SATURDAY’S 12:45-4

Household Goods in Acton is currently experiencing a severe Saturday afternoon volunteer shortage.

If you have volunteered at Household Good before, we need you!

At Household Goods, we embrace student volunteering!

We have an ongoing need for student volunteers (ages 14 and over) to assist with various projects in our center in Acton.
Students can volunteer on Saturdays, during school breaks and over the summer.

Shifts are typically:

Morning: 8:45am to noon (3 hrs, 15 minutes)

Midday: noon to 2:15pm (2 hours, 15 minutes)

Afternoon: 12:45pm to 4pm (3 hrs, 15 minutes)

Volunteering at Household Goods is a great way for students to work together as a group, develop and practice leadership skills, be a part of a team, earn community service hours and more.

We have immediate openings at our Acton center for:

Individual Student Volunteers – working with clients (Portuguese or Spanish language skills a plus!), sorting and preparing items for distribution to clients and assisting with the furniture donation process.

Student Volunteering Groups – 2-10 students who can follow instructions and work independently. Groups typically volunteer for a one-time event, or can choose to make volunteering a recurring event (once a week, once a month, etc.).

Student Community Service Weeks – Do you have extra time over an upcoming break or over the summer? We are now offering vacation week programs. Grab a friend or 2 and volunteer! It’s a great way to meet new people while helping out the community. See the schedule on this page for specific vacation dates.

February Student Community Service Week (15 Hours)
April Student Community Service Week
Summer Student Community Service Weeks

Individual Volunteers need to attend one New Volunteer Orientation, typically offered on the 1st Saturday of the month 10am-11:30am at the center in Acton OR the 3rd Tuesday of the month 7pm-8pm via Zoom.
