Community Forklift Background information: Community Forklift is like a thrift store crossed with a hardware store – we’re lifting up communities with low-cost building materials! At our very large warehouse, you can donate new and used building materials to receive a tax deduction, or you can purchase materials at prices that are priced 40% - 80% below retail. Community Forklift aims to: • Lift up communities by making repairs and renovation more affordable for everyone in the community - homeowners, small businesses, charitable groups, etc. • Reduce construction industry waste, keep reusable materials out of the landfill, and reduce the mining and harvesting of dwindling natural resources. • Promote environmentally-friendly building materials and methods • Develop career opportunities for nearby residents. What volunteers will be doing: Volunteers will be working in small groups to help with a variety of tasks indoors in our warehouse and outdoors in our courtyard (weather permitting). Possible activities will involve measuring and pricing doors, granite, and glass shelves, mixing & testing paint, sorting & organizing, and/or general tidying up of certain departments in the warehouse, such as the Tile Aisle! Since we are a thrift store, our inventory and our needs are constantly changing, so please prepare to be flexible in your specific volunteer assignment! Things to bring • Clothes that can get dirty or possibly a little painted • Sturdy sneakers or work boots • Water bottles and coffee mugs (we’ll provide drinking water and coffee!) • Dress for the weather – be aware our warehouse is NOT climate-controlled so it can get quite hot in summer and cold in winter! • Long pants are recommended year-round Community Forklift 4671 Tanglewood Drive, Edmonston, MD 20781 Jan 21 2013 9:30AM - Jan 21 2013 2:00PM55
