Hope Central (HC) is calling on the public to help them with their charitable endeavours. Volunteers are needed to help supply and serve food to those in need.
“The changes being thrust upon us are intense and the end is not in sight. Several HC volunteers are no longer able to help due to the health risk involved, for themselves or their family, and understandably so. I feel hesitant to even ask, when only a few weeks ago it was a simple request, but we are in need of volunteers to continue our work for the community,” explained Carrie Prentice, director at Hope Central.
The COVID-19 pandemic has made it more difficult, but not impossible, to help others.
“Safety is of the utmost priority, so we have ramped up efforts to avoid the spread of a virus among our volunteers and those we serve while maintaining social distancing. Gloves and masks will be provided. Our frontline worker, Zach, will be there to direct, assist and organize.”
Volunteers are needed to help with breakfast service from 8-9 a.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays (volunteers are needed from 7:15 to 9:15 a.m. and with supper service from 6 to 7 p.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays (volunteers are needed from 5:15 to 7:15 p.m.
If you are able, willing and health risk free to volunteer, Hope Central would love hear from you. Contact Carrie at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 604-854-0780.
