Volunteering

Volunteers are the heart and soul of any community based organization and the WECAN Food Basket Society’s volunteers are no exception!  Each depot has a group of dedicated volunteers that sort the bulk groceries into orders.

We are always looking for:

  • Depot Coordinator Volunteers
    • Each Depot has an coordinator responsible for collecting food orders from members and sending it to our main office, organizing their depot volunteers and sorting the order on delivery day.
  • Volunteer Drivers
    • Pick up the depot food orders from TGP (The Grocery People Market Warehouse) 14505 Yellowhead Trail once a month.  All drivers need a vehicle that will accommodate the order and proof of  license and insurance.
  • Depot Volunteers
    • Help weigh and sort food into orders and may assist the coordinators with phoning members prior to depot day.
  • Warehouse Volunteers
    • Arrive early morning and are physically fit and ensure that all items  ordered are on hand and assist with loading depot orders onto volunteer driver’s vehicle.
  • Members for the Board of Directors
    • Volunteers with experience in working with non profit groups, volunteer boards, or who have a background in finance, social work, health or education are invited or health or education are invited to participate in board or committee positions.

Would you like to help make a difference and do you have a couple hours a month to spare? Are you an early riser and physically fit, then we could use your assistance at the warehouse as a helper, or we have depots that you could use your assistance in unloading the drivers vehicle and help sort the case lots  into individual orders.

If you would like to assist us with a couple hours a month, please click on the Volunteer Application, complete the application and either fax it back to us at 780-413-4525 or email it to: info@wecanfood.com.
