Who you should contact:  Please email Madeline James at volunteer@scrapexchange.org to sign up for a volunteer shift!

Where you should go: The 9:30 and 1:30 shift folks should report to our current storefront at 923 Franklin Street Durham. The evening shift folks should report to our future storefront at 2050 Chapel Hill Road Durham.

What you should wear: Please wear comfortable closed toed shoes and clothes that you are comfortable working in and don’t mind getting dirty. It will be muggy and dusty.

What you should bring: Please bring your reusable water bottle so that you can keep hydrated. If you have hand trucks or dollies that you are willing to share that would be helpful. We’ll have a box truck plus our two vans, but if you have a good moving vehicle we’ll gladly put it to use.

What you should expect: Be ready to move lots of stuff! We’ll be loading vans and box trucks in the morning. We’ll be breaking down and assembling shelving. We’ll be sorting and organizing so that our bins of materials look extra beautiful when we re-open. Doesn’t that sound fun?! Expect to be on your feet in the heat. The Scrap Exchange will provide food.

Please spread the word about volunteering for our move. We still need more hands!
