What's It Like Volunteering in the COVER Store?

COVER relies on volunteers like Fran Oscadal because he completes our two-person team that travels the Upper Valley in our big white box truck picking up donations of furniture, appliances, tools etc. Fran has all the qualities we could need. He’s very physically able and cautious. He’s a friendly and engaging ambassador for COVER.

 “Years ago, my daughter and I volunteered together on a COVER ramp project. I continued with several other home repair projects over the years. After retiring, I saw that the COVER store needed help with pick-ups, so I’ve gone out with the box truck each Wednesday for the past two years. I like the dedicated coworkers, the regular schedule, and the physical work,” Fran explains.

 When Fran helps pickup donated furniture, appliances, cabinets, or tools, the COVER Store tries to sell these items at attractive prices.  All net profits are invested in the COVER home repair and weatherization programs for homeowners needing an urgent repair like an accessibility ramp or a new roof.
