The Stop began as a volunteer-run organization in the 1970s, and volunteers still play a vital role in every aspect of our work.
Many volunteers have experience with issues facing our community, such as unemployment, poverty, and homelessness. This creates a unique sense of community in a non-judgmental and empathetic environment.
At The Stop, we ask all volunteers to make a commitment of one shift per week, for a minimum of 4-6 months. Most roles available are in our Drop-in, Food Bank, and Good Food Market. Shifts are 4-hours long, usually between the period of 8AM to 3:30PM.
People interested in volunteering are asked to attend one of our bi-monthly volunteer information session, and will be contacted after that about coming in for an interview. The next volunteer information session will be on Monday, March 8th from 10:30am – 11:45am at our 1884 Davenport Road location and/or remotely via the internet**.
**For safety reasons, there are a limited number of in-person spaces available for this session. If you have the technology to join online, please do so to leave the in-person spaces for community members who don’t have those resources.
