COVID-19 Update

Many vulnerable people in our communities will be self-isolating themselves for their safety. We are looking for volunteers to help with deliveries and support during this time.

We have simplified the volunteer application process for the immediate future for those interested in helping during the COVID-19 crisis. If you are interested in volunteering beyond the current situation, you will need to follow the standard volunteer application process.
