Volunteer

Volunteering: Do what you love… with us!

Do you like to garden? cook? fix things?
Do you enjoy bookkeeping, fundraising, computers or simply working with people?
Wherever your interests lie, let’s talk. It’s all about the right fit and the right timing, for you and for us.

Volunteer in the Centre, from home or with your community

Here are a few examples of what you might do to help:

In the Centre. Prepare light meals, serve soup, sort donations, repair clothes, cut hair, play a musical instrument, organize or distribute hygiene supplies, play chess or cribbage.

From your home. Cook a favorite dish or bake some treats.

With your community. Organize a drive to collect ground coffee, socks, underwear or soap, razors, toothbrushes and other personal supplies. Community led fundraisers make a huge difference for the centre.

How it works

Our needs vary greatly over time. Our volunteer co-ordinator fields offers of help and matches them with the right roles at the right time. In-centre volunteers must be at least 18 years old and commit to a minimum of one two-hour shift per week for six months. Anyone who works directly with our community in the centre must also provide a police check.

Interested?

Please contact our volunteer co-ordinator: drop-in@centre507.org.  We look forward to meeting you.
