We welcome individuals 14 and older who will follow the guidance of a Shift Leader and work as part of a team. All volunteers must demonstrate a respectful attitude in all interactions with our guests, other volunteers and supervisors.
If you can commit to a 2-3 hour shift to set up for dinner, serve, work in the kitchen, set-up the sleep room, socialize with guests, sort and distribute donated clothing, then register to volunteer from November to March. Community service hours are available for high school students.
Groups of 6 or more must contact the Volunteer Coordinator to schedule a group volunteer commitment.
Distributing practical warm clothing and toiletries from our pop-up clothing room is essential to support our guests’ dignity. Most of our guests are male, Med. - 4X. We greatly appreciate your carefully selected donations of the following clean items in excellent condition:
Labelled donations can be dropped off 7 days a week at the main Jackman Ave. door.
OOTC is funded 100% by donations and run by volunteers – all money donated is used to fund the program.
Cheques payable to East End United: subject line: Out of the Cold.
Tax-receipts (mailed in February) will be issued for any donation of $25 or more.
Questions related to program, sponsorship or donations get in touch with our Program Coordinator, Gloria McPherson: firstname.lastname@example.org
