Vinnies Stores across Tasmania are part of the St. Vincent de Paul Society, a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to supporting people experiencing poverty and hardship. Vinnies Stores aim to provide affordable and quality second-hand goods to the community while also generating funds to support the Society's various programs and services. Do you have a flair for fashion? Maybe you’re a styling sensation? We’d love to welcome you!

Specifically, Vinnies Stores collect and sell pre-loved clothing, furniture, household items, and other goods donated by the community. We have Stores in almost every corner of Tasmania which offer a range of roles and opening hours.

Volunteers play an essential role in supporting Vinnies Stores' activities and achieving our mission. Some of the roles of a Vinnies Store volunteer may include:

  • Sorting and pricing donated items
  • Assisting customers in-store and providing a friendly and welcoming environment
  • Operating the cash register and handling transactions
  • Merchandising and maintaining store displays
  • Tidying and organising the store
  • Assisting with donation pickups and deliveries
  • Participating in fundraising activities and community events

Vinnies Stores in Tasmania provide an essential service to the community, both by offering affordable goods and supporting people in need. Volunteers are a vital part of this work, and your contribution will help to make a real difference in the lives of others.
