Select an activity from our online calender and make an impact whenever it suits you
Your job as a volunteer will be to sort out second-hand stuff (like kitchen utensils, clothes and books) under the supervision of the charming Mien. The articles will then have to be given a nice spot in the shop. On Thursdays you will assist with shop activities and make sure that the shelves are kept fully stocked; these are part of a team of volunteers’ activities.
Each week some 400 people visit the Give-away shop. The ‘customers’ are only allowed to shop with us if they can prove that they live below a certain low-income threshold. By drawing lots it is decided who may enter the shop and in what order. The others await their turn in Adam community centre; while enjoying a cup of coffee. As such, the waiting period offers the possibility to meet other people.
The Give-away shop supports residents from The Hague who live below the low-income threshold by offering good, usable items for free. It is an accessible platform for people to start participating (again) in society.
