Make a Difference:Volunteers in Charity, NGO's & Ethical Biz Message Board › Volunteer Opportunity at the Union Gosel Mission
You may be aware that we are in a time of transition here at Union Gospel Mission. We recently expanded into our new Hastings facility on the corner of Hastings and Princess where we are pleased to offer expanded services to the community we love.
As we have begun serving meals out of the new facility we have been overwhelmed with the blessing of many guests coming to Union Gospel Mission for community meals.
This week at the new Hastings facility, we started off serving180 people at lunch on Monday and 250 people at dinner on Monday. By Thursday we were serving 228 people at lunch and 338 people at dinner!
Though we are thrilled to be able to serve so many people, we’re also recognizing the need for additional volunteer support.
We are currently looking for volunteers to come in and help out for the month of April assisting particularly with dishwashing and dining room clean-up during meal services. This position would require people to be in good physical condition and able to lift 25lbs.
The time frames we are looking to fill are:
1:30pm – 3:00pm 7 days/week
6:30pm – 8:00pm 7 days/week
If you are interested in coming in to volunteer for a shift in April, please contact the Volunteer Resources Department at firstname.lastname@example.org
We also will be looking for people who are interested in volunteering in our kitchens on a regular basis. If you are interested in helping out on a regular basis please contact us through email@example.com and we can discuss potential volunteer positions.
Thank you for your support of Union Gospel Mission! We certainly appreciate your prayers during this time of transition as we continue to serve dignity and hope to the community.
