Impact Statement At Victoria Women In Need Community Cooperative (WIN), we support women, trans, non-binary and two-spirit people along their journey between crisis, financial self sufficiency, and wellness. Our programs are there along each step of their journey. We value self sustainability, healthy relationships, entrepreneurship, conscious choice, personal empowerment, and environmental responsibility.

We believe everyone deserves an equal voice and opportunity to provide healthy, environmentally and financially sustainable lives for themselves and their families.

How do we support this? We collect donated goods and provide high quality clothing, household items and furniture through five Resale Shops in Victoria. The revenue from our shops, together with financial donations, covers the entire cost of running our non profit cooperative, and funds our empowerment programs. So whether you are a shopper, donor, or volunteer you too have a hand in transforming our community.
Description Our donation centre is looking for more wonderful volunteers to join our team! Volunteering at our donation centre means you will be at the forefront of our daily intake of donations and will have opportunities for lots of different tasks. From greeting donors as they drop off their items, to sorting and hanging clothing, cleaning dishes, testing electronic items and batteries, and quality checking games and media items. Whether you prefer to be outside helping donors or prefer organizational tasks inside, we have opportunities for everyone! Volunteering with WIN is a great way to build language, customer service, and organizational skills, as well as get valuable experience for your resume. We have volunteer shifts available both mornings and afternoons seven days a week. If you love hunting for obscure treasures and the fun of thrifting please get in touch, we’d love to welcome you to WIN Community Cooperative.
