Curtain Bank Volunteer


Dunedin Curtain Bank


Practical Help


Working Hours



Dunedin Curtain Bank up-cycles unwanted and unused curtains, lines them, and distributes them to those in need in our community. Curtains make a significant difference to the warmth of a home.

  • Assessing curtain donations
  • Accurately measuring and labeling curtains
  • Folding and shelving the curtains carefully
  • Engaging in general sorting tasks, such as dehooking, and unknotting of curtains
  • Helping to keep the curtain store room tidy, and other assorted tasks at the Curtain Bank
