Project SHARE has reduced it's number of volunteers due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The safety of our volunteers is a top priority, so we are currently operating staff and limited volunteers and are asking our many other volunteers to stay safe at home until the situation improves. At this time, we are not currently accepting applications for new volunteers, however, thank you for your interest in Project SHARE and for wishing to support those less fortunate in our community.
Volunteers are an integral part of our organization. They are the heart of Project SHARE, performing many essential tasks. Our core group of volunteers give their time to assist families in need that receive emergency food. These volunteers provide a friendly welcome and help to make families feel comfortable when visiting Project SHARE. Warehouse volunteers provide muscle power and are detailed when sorting through donated food, check for expiry dates and dented canned food items that cannot be used within the food bank.
Volunteers also have other opportunities to get involved by helping at events such as our annual food drives, parades and an assortment of other community events. After business hours and weekend opportunities are available occasionally throughout the year.
Co-op student placements are available at Project SHARE, but are limited to 2 students per semester. Administrative and warehouse positions are also available. Some administrative duties can include photo copying, data entry, creative design and assisting with events. Warehouse duties would include sorting food, janitorial duties, lifting and recycling. Co-op opportunities are offered through an interview process with our Volunteer Coordinator and the Co-op School Administrator.
