Share the Warmth depends on volunteers to make its work possible. Give of your time at the food bank, in the kitchen, on the road as a driver or at the second-hand clothing shop. Or perhaps you have time to count Café-Boutique dollars a few hours a week! You may consider volunteering your time with youth in the tutoring, mentoring, or music program. Please sign up by completing the volunteer form or by speaking with the volunteer coordinator by email or by calling 514-933-5599 (extension 223).

Volunteers make the world go around!
At Share the Warmth, many of our programs depend on the sustained volunteer hours put in by the many generous souls who grace our doors. The school food program always needs muffin makers, the second-hand shop and school supply programs need people willing to pick up supplies from friends and neighbours while the food bank always needs the strong arms of helping hands to sort and distribute the food.
Partner for a day
One way for large companies to give back to their communities is by partnering with Share the Warmth for a day and volunteering their employees. On that day, company staff members volunteer at Share the warmth to do whatever is needed. For example, in the past, Partners for a day have painted our space, volunteered at the food bank or handed out school supplies.
Some of our partners for a day have been Bombardier Aerospace, McGill, Canadian Grenadier Gards, Beurling Academy, BOS, Jumpstreet, Yellow Pages and Concordia.
