Angel's Attic Volunteers

Leader: Al Ferrando

 

During COVID-tide Angel's Attic has been closed due to public health guidelines since March 2020.  We've taken advantage of this time to renovate our premises in anticipation of reopening when Marin County Public Health and Diocese of California guidelines allow us to do so. 

For many years, Angel's Attic has been managed and staffed by volunteers, mostly from our Parish, but occasionally by local Novato community members.

Angel's Attic provides three modest and hands-on ways to promote a greener world: Staffing, Donating and Shopping.

Here are details on how you can help:

Volunteer at Angels Attic

The Attic volunteers are nicknamed "the Angels" (of course!).  As that day's proprietor of the Attic, the only requirement is to be cheerful, friendly and enjoy being with people. Some days, the customers will range in age from 1 to 90, you may hear 4 different languages, you will meet dealers who will educate you on watches, books or ceramics, and some customers just come in to have a chat. Training involves a 15 minute orientation and teaming up with another volunteer until you are comfortable on your own.

Donate to Angels Attic

Donating your gently used goods to the Attic is a lovely way to volunteer. Donations may have a dollar value, but just as important is their value to be useful, to be appreciated, and to give pleasure. Outgrown toys entertain the next generation, books wait for their next audience, baskets are only useful when they are filled, vases need flowers, and a single pretty plate makes the cookies on it taste better.

If you are in the process of “downsizing”, think of making a donation to Angel's Attic.  Gently used household items will find a new home through Angel's Attic. Tools are especially popular with many of our customers, both men and women.

Donated items recycle the earth's resources that were consumed in their manufacture, and also recycle their usefulness, the creator's craftsmanship and the pleasure that they can provide. Tax deductible receipts for charitable giving are provided.

 

Shop at Angels Attic

Shopping as volunteering! What a great concept! At the attic you can purchase useful and fun items at low cost that have the same usefulness as an identical, new item. By moderating our consumption of new items, and purchasing used items when possible, we not only conserve the earth's resources, but preserve and appreciate past industry.

To volunteer, contact Al  Ferrando at akferrando@earthlink.net or 415-665-5880 or Mary Santora at marysantora@gmail.com or 732-674-0651.
