Volunteer in an ESRA Shop

ESRA 'Nearly New Shops' are central in the lives of many new immigrants, foreign workers, young families etc. who can purchase good quality goods at very reasonable prices. We currently have shops in Raanana and Kfar Saba 
Volunteers always welcome to help with the various duties - come in to have a look around - you can ring first to get easy directions to the shop.

Volunteers commit themselves to come for a few hours each week to help sort, fold and sell the goods.  Each shop has a professional in charge and guidance is given. Hebrew is an advantage, but not essential.

Volunteer drivers are also needed to collect goods from donors' homes.

ESRA now has three Second Hand Bookshops and volunteers are always welcome. Please call the following numbers:
Modiin 08-634 6528
Raanana 09-748 0541
Or Akiva 050-823 5216
