Donate Your Time & Skills

UPDATE: AS OF MAY 1, 2019, WE DO NOT HAVE A VOLUNTEER COORDINATOR. AT THIS TIME, WE CAN ONLY TAKE VOLUNTEER APPLICATIONS (FOR GROUPS AND INDIVIDUALS) FOR DATES STARTING IN SEPTEMBER, 2019. WE APOLOGIZE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE.

Come get your hands dirty for a good cause! Volunteer at the Forklift in your free time, and meet folks from diverse backgrounds as we work together to lift the community through reuse. Opportunities range from helping out at community events or greeting warehouse visitors to cleaning and organizing donated materials.

We welcome individuals and groups of volunteers ages 16 and up.  Seniors are encouraged to apply – you do NOT need to lift heavy items to be useful!

Please contact us at least two weeks before the day you would like to volunteer.  Except during special events, we are usually only available to host volunteers between 9 am and 4 pm. We are generally unable to accommodate volunteer groups on Saturdays.

If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out our volunteer inquiry form below (this form is secured using SSL upon submission). We will get back to you as soon as possible to set up an orientation for an individual volunteer, or confirm the date for a volunteer group.

Please note:  it may take up to two weeks to respond to volunteer inquiries. We are unable to accommodate volunteers who need to start their service immediately.
