Forestdale is in need of someone to volunteer as an assistant in our Family Store. Organizations such as Baby Buggy provide brand new items (clothing, diapers, strollers, toys, etc) that Forestdale distributes daily to our families and children. The volunteer will need to make a minimum commitment of 1 day a week for 3 months. You will help distribute the clothes to Forestdale's case planners and their families during this time and keep the store organized. Training will be provided.If you are interested or would like more information, please contact Community Development Associate, Tiffany Ward, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 718-263-0740.About Forestdale:Forestdale is a non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening the inner-city families of Queens that dates back more than 150 years.
