Diversity Richmond would not exist today without the contributions of our volunteers. Our volunteers are a valuable resource and enable us to give more back to the community!
What can you do to help?
Most volunteer opportunities require little or no experience, but we are always open to new suggestions. Here are a few of the opportunities we have available:
Special Events – we have a pool of volunteers who help us with special events such as gallery openings, concerts, programs, etc. Volunteers help with set-up and break down for the event, taking tickets, bartending and clean-up. We also have volunteers who help moderate events and activities.
Gallery Docents – We need a few volunteers to help in the Iridian Gallery. If you have an interest in art and like interacting with the public, you can provide information to our visitors. We would love to have the gallery staffed every afternoon from 12 pm – 6 pm.
Diversity Thrift – Volunteers help in all aspects of the thrift store (one of our key fundraisers!) from receiving donations to stocking shelves and bagging purchases. Volunteers also help with cleaning and keeping the store neat. If you have customer service experience or retail experience, we would love your help. If you have experience recognizing collectible items and/or pricing antiques, we need your help.
Diversity Bingo! – Tuesday and Thursday nights from 5:30 pm to 10:15 pm or Tuesday mornings from 10:00 am to 1:30 pm. No experience needed! Brief Training required. GREAT EXERCISE!!! Walk around the Bingo Hall while selling instant tickets. FREE MEAL during each session.
Data Entry – We need volunteers who don’t mind sitting at a computer for a couple of hours helping us to update and maintain information databases about our donations.
DO YOU HAVE A SPECIAL SKILL THAT YOU WOULD LOVE TO PUT TO USE FOR YOUR COMMUNITY? If you know of a way that you can help that isn’t on the list, please contact us. We know that everyone has special skills and the possibilities are endless.
