DONATE YOUR TIME
We are volunteer powered
Volunteers have been the driving force of our organisation since it began in 2015 and continue to be the foundation on which our organisation grows.
Our Treasure Boxes volunteer family are amazing people who are willing to help out whenever they can spare some time.
We need help with all tasks big and small.
Volunteers must commit to one shift every 6 weeks as a minimum. You can choose the day you wish to volunteer and the length of time you are on site.
General volunteers sort, safety check and pack donated items. All volunteers will be inducted as a general warehouse volunteer. After 4-6 shifts of rotating through different positions you will then be able to decide which area of the warehouses you enjoyed the most.
Volunteers will safety check large nursery furniture including cots, change tables, bassinets, car seats and prams. All items will need to be cleaned and before sending out to our families.
We run a beautifully presented children’s op shop on site in Edwardstown. Volunteers will be required to maintain the presentation and stock in the Baby Boutique. Interact with customers and process sales using a Eftpos machine. Full training is provided. You must commit to one 4hr shift per week – positions are limited.
Use our company van to deliver goods to our families, pick up donations and run errands. You must be able to drive a van and a trailer. You will be required to have a current driver’s license, a National Police Check with no driving offences and complete a minimum of 4 shifts with an experienced Treasure Boxes driver. You must commit to one 4hr shift per week – positions are limited.
Join our small but mighty team of volunteers at our Davoren Park site. Your volunteer role will consist of speaking to families when they enquire about our services, pick referrals and stock shelves.
HOW DO I SIGN-UP?
Fill out an application form on our website.
Find a copy of your National Police and Working With Children checks.

Attend an induction
Once your National Police and Working With Children checks have been processed and approved, we will run an induction session in the warehouse – introducing you to your volunteer role and the team you will be volunteering with. Inductions are run every 6 to 8 weeks depending on our need for Volunteers. Inductions are held on site at our Edwardstown Warehouse
