The Drop in Centre has served over 1.2 million meals and keeps many Calgarians Fed and Sheltered, volunteers are imperative to keep things running! https://www.calgarydropin.ca

It's very important that if you sign up, you show up. If you can't make it please change your RSVP so someone else can take your spot!

After this volunteer opportunity you are welcome to join Mel & the other volunteers for coffee and a chat nearby at Good Earth!

Some information from the Drop in Centre:

"Please ensure your group is prepared to start your shift at 5:30 p.m. You may need a few minutes to get settled and lock up any personal belongings, our staff will come to the Volunteer Resource Centre at 5:45 p.m. to start escorting the volunteers to their stations. Please arrive on time: Any volunteers arriving more than ten minutes late will not be able to serve in their original role.

This is a 18+ volunteer opportunity.

Please park on the south side of the building, right in front of the main entrance, indicated with "Reserved Parking" signs.

Vehicles parked on our premises are left at your own discretion and the Calgary Drop-In Centre will not be held responsible for damage to personal property.

When you arrive please go to Security and they will direct you up to the 2nd floor to gather in our Volunteer Resource Centre. An Adult Care Worker (ACW) will provide you with more detailed direction at that time. You may securely store your personal belongings in the lockers provided in our Volunteer Resource Centre. The Calgary Drop-In Centre will not be held responsible for lost or misplaced items.

Please sign in for your shift, on the laptop in the Volunteer Resource Centre.
