What does a volunteer do?
Volunteer roles include sorting and stocking food, packing hampers, checking food for expiry dates, event volunteering, cleaning, heavy lifting and administrative work as needed. Feel free to stop by our location at any time during operational hours to offer to participate in volunteer orientation.
How do I sign up?
We have moved all volunteer applications to an online database called WBVolunteers (in partnership with FuseSocial) that will allow us to recruit, coordinate, and track our volunteers better and more efficiently! Instead of filling out our paper form, all you need to do now is create an account online and easily sign up for time slots! This system will eventually bring the entire volunteer community of RMWB to one local hub, where you can find roles that best suite you with several organizations!
Volunteer hours under normal circumstances are between 10am and 8pm Monday to Thursday, and the second Saturday of each month from 9 am till 4 pm. (Fridays are by appointment, subject to staff availability.)
Large Group Volunteer opportunities are available and can be arranged by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 780-743-1125 ext. 228.
