Impact Statement
Volunteers get an opportunity to make new friends and meet interesting people as well as having the satisfaction of making a positive difference in another person’s life. In addition, this will be an opportunity to develop new skills and abilities and give you a chance to belong to and feel part of a unique community.

Server volunteers will support staff by serving sit down meals to guests in the dining room, providing Grab and Go meals out the main foyer doors to those who do not wish to stay, and supporting washroom use to ensure physical distancing and proper sanitation is followed. Server volunteers will also help to support the physical health and safety of everyone at the Community Centre by helping to clean and sanitize at the end of each shift.
At this time, face masks are required for the duration of the shift. PPE will be supplied.
