Traverse City Charity Requesting Help From Strong Volunteers

Posted: Updated:

A Traverse City charity is looking for strong volunteers.

The Father Fred Foundation needs volunteers to help in the furniture department who are able to lift more than 50 lbs.

Every week, the Foundation receives many donations of couches, dressers, chairs, tables and other furniture pieces.  The charity then gives the donations to families in need, free-of-charge, in a 5-county area including Antrim, Benzie, Grand Traverse, Kalkaska, and Leelanau counties. 

Father Fred is low on volunteers who have the ability and strength to move the heavy items.

Volunteers typically work a 4-hour shift, once a week. There are several shift opportunities throughout the week. 

People who are interested in volunteering should contact Sue Bauer by phone: 231-947-2055 or by email: sbauer@fatherfred.org.
