Volunteering at The Bread of Life is fun and the work is rewarding!
Just a few of our Volunteer Opportunities...
Kitchen/dining room help – 7 days to choose from!
We really need help right away ! Demand is growing and we need daily help with food and beverage service and clean-up. Dishwashers are super helpful too! Hours range from 8:30-2:30. If you can spare a couple of hours a week - we'd love to welcome you to the team!
Weekday kitchen help /Food Triage Helpers
Be here when food deliveries arrive and help sort, label, organize and take items to various storage and distribution areas within the centre. 2-hour shifts.
(semi) Monthly - Clean inside of large front windows – create seasonal and event related displays. Update our Wish-list board and make sure a gratitude of support is in the window somewhere in some form (use your creativity!) Groups welcome!
Help with filing, organizing, general administrative and reception and some correspondence. Volunteer coordination needed too. Share your special skills! If you are good at website maintenance or desktop publishing we welcome your help in that area too!
Help with special events
We have many special events throughout the year that require extra hands. Some are fundraisers and some are just special events for our guests and volunteers. Currently we are looking for volunteers for the September 2018 Port Alberni Toy Run (Prep, Set Up, and Serving) and for our Harvest Dinner Fundraiser in October.
Cleaning and Maintenance
We are a non-profit with a small staff and limited budget and we are very busy these days. We really need help with after meals clean-up and regular maintenance. Can you help one day a week for 2 hours?
