Love Hope and Grattitude Foundation - Butterfly Effect Cafe/Op Shop/Drop-in Centre

Volunteers are required for the Butterfly Effect Café and Pre-loved Treasure-trove.
Volunteers are required for various duties to assist with our new venture which is a Café and Treasure Trove located at 19 McLaren Street, Mount Barker.  The building with all the butterflies!


Current Opportunities are available for:

  • assistance with food preparations & kitchen duties
  • assistance with Café service
  • assistance in sorting, displaying and pricing donations in the Treasure Trove
  • assisting in various small tasks as needed
  • up front Manager and till operator.

We require volunteers to work in the café and pre-loved items shop area on the days we are open to the public.  There are many jobs to be done, from serving in the cafe,  assisting with purchases, sorting  and pricing donations, to displaying goods and general assistance. Our goal is to open 6 days a week, Monday to Saturday inclusive, but we are only able to open 3 days a week in the initial phase (Thursday through Saturday). As our volunteer numbers increase we will expand our hours.

Volunteer support and training will be available, with two volunteer shifts per day and we appreciate any time that you can spare.


We have a fantastic commercial coffee machine and barista training can be made available for volunteers who will work in our cafe. 


Our Volunteer Coordinator is preparing the roster and looks forward to hearing from you.  


We are also looking for some able bodied helpers!
