Food bank or Food Distribution Volunteers
Do you have concern about food security or want to help those in need with accessing free or affordable food? We are looking for individuals who can help sort, bag, store, shop and/or deliver food for isolated individuals and/or seniors living in Burnaby. Times and days are flexible.
Do you want experience working in an office setting? Do you enjoy working with others or chatting with people? Or do you enjoy sorting and organizing information? We are looking for office volunteers to help out at our South office once a week for 3 hours.
Digital Cafe Greeter and Outreach Assistant
Are you digitally savvy or enjoy helping others on digital devices? Volunteers are needed to assist with greeting registered participants on site. Volunteers are responsible for asking participants to complete client and COVID intake forms, as well as assist during the program. Volunteers are needed on Mondays from 10 am – 12:00 pm (North Burnaby location) and Thursdays from 3:00 – 5:30 pm (South Burnaby location), as well as occasionally during outreach events.
After submitting your form on BetterImpact, you will be prompted to book a quick informal interview with us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org your availability between Mondays to Thursdays. This is so we get to know a bit more about you, your interests and skills, and help you find the right volunteer opportunity match.
After your volunteer interview, you will be sent either a link or a letter to obtain a free criminal record check.
We will contact your non-family reference (friend, neighbour, classmate, or colleague) listed in your application. If possible, please provide their email as it helps expedite the process.
Online orientations will be conducted online. Once you complete your interview, a sign up link will be sent to you.
