Holiday Grocery Volunteer 2016
We have lots of jobs on this day, from greeting people to distributing food, to making merry and handing out treats. Your open & welcoming, non-judgemental attitude will be most appreciated on this day. We encourage festive dress (though not required).
Holiday Grocery Orientation:
You are welcome to attend our Orientation on Thursday December 8th, from 5:30-6:30pm at our 803 East Hastings building. If you haven’t volunteered for the Holiday Grocery before, it is strongly recommended that you attend. If you are absolutely unable to attend the orientation, please talk to us and we’ll work something out.
If you have volunteered for the Holiday Grocery before, you do not need to attend but are welcome to. This is a great opportunity get a solid understanding of how the flow of the day works. Come and have some food and meet some of the other volunteers that you will be working with.
