We prioritize St. James Town residents in our volunteer opportunities, but encourage non-St. James Town residents to get involved as well.
On deliveries, teams of 3 volunteers will take 1 trolly and 1-2 wagons with the filled boxes to the lobby or front door of apartment buildings. Residents will be asked to meet you in the lobby in advance, but in some cases will require door deliveries. This activity is mostly outdoor and distanced, but requires some indoor work when required to deliver boxes to doors, and will require some contact.
To deliver with us please register with us on TimeCounts here

Food packing volunteers may help prepare our emergency food boxes or our bulk food buying club orders. Food packing can include packaging individual dry goods into smaller sized bags or organizing food into the food boxes.

Other Volunteering Opportunities
In this role, you will be matched with a small group (2-6 people) of the St. James Town community who do not have email to inform them of events and opportunities. This role includes making weekly phone calls to these residents and will require phone and internet access.?
Due to the language diversity of St James Town, additional language skills are an asset but by no means required. COVID-19 has been incredibly isolating for many, and as an e-Buddy you will play a dual role in updating "buddies'' as well as being a friend to check in with them each week.
To become an e-buddy, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
