Housing Works Bookstore and Café is an entrepreneurial arm of Housing Works, a New York non-profit whose mission is to end the dual crises of homelessness and AIDS through relentless advocacy, the provision of lifesaving services, and entrepreneurial businesses that sustain our efforts. All of the books we sell are donated by members of the community, and a majority of the people that work in the bookstore are volunteers. You can find out more about Housing Works' mission, services, and advocacy by visiting our website: http://www.housingworks.org/.
We are currently looking for volunteers in Chicago because Housing Works is a partner of Book Expo America, which will for the first time in a while be held in Chicago rather than New York City. Historically, we have received large quantities of books from the publishers that attend the event and would really appreciate the help of local volunteers! This is a great opportunity for those interested in the literary work and HIV/AIDS advocacy.
We are looking for volunteers to help out during the following shifts:
Saturday, May 14th 5:00-9:00pm
If you are only able to attend part of the shift, we may be able to accomodate you.
