Book Sorting Volunteer
Thousands of books are donated to Lifeline every week, and volunteers are required to sort, price and pack them. Under the direction of the Books Team Leader, volunteers have a critical role to play in the success of Lifeline’s major fundraiser, our Big Book Fairs.
Join our sorting team
The Lifeline South Coast book sorting team are a dedicated, friendly and knowledgeable group of volunteers who manage to sort, clean, research, price, and pack around 200,000 books per year! These books are sold at our Big Book Fair fundraising events as well as our Lifeline Shops.
Volunteers are needed all year round at our Book Sorting section located in Wollongong. If you have an interest in or love for books of any genre, this is a great volunteer opportunity for you!
Roles include sorting books by category and/or author, pricing and packing books for Lifeline’s Big Book Fair and Retail Shops, internet research for the value of items, and a variety of logistics and support tasks including taking donations.
