Volunteers wanted

We will need helping hands throughout the entire day, but can share the time. You do not need to present the entire day, but can join and help for a few hours. Every helping hand, if it is for a long period of time or short, is really much appreciated!

Particularly we will need help in the morning hours, when all people will come and bring in their donations. And also in the end, when our charity partners will come to pick up the donations. We will need helping hands which can carry also boxes. In the afternoon we estimate until 3pm.
