Volunteer with Gordon Neighborhood House
Gordon Neighbourhood House is a community service organization located in the West End of Downtown Vancouver. Gordon Neighbourhood House’s goal is to strengthen our community through voluntary activity. When we as neighbours identify issues which voluntary action alone cannot address, Gordon Neighbourhood House secures the necessary additional resources.
Gordon Neighbourhood House’s challenge is to remain sensitive to the ever changing needs of the diverse groups of people who live in our neighbourhood, and to respond with innovative and effective programs and services.
Here are some programs where volunteers are required:
Community Lunch Program: This program is supervised by a staff member who guides a group of volunteers on preparing and serving meals to approx 30 guests. On Mon & Wed it is a pay what you can veggie/vegan meal, and on Tues & Thurs it is 3 courses for $5 with a meat based main. The food is always a nutritionally balanced meal. Volunteers assist to set up the room, prepare the food, serve the guests and clean up afterwards. Volunteers are needed from 10.30am-2.30pm
Attic thrift store: we have 2 thrift store locations, one on Davie St and one upstairs at Gordon House. Typically each store would have two volunteers per shift, shifts are between 11am-3pm and 3pm-6pm. One person would sort the clothes and the other person does the cash. It is a fun environment to be in!
Children’s programs are run throughout the week. Students seeking to gain further experience in childcare or Early Childhood Education will be able to get hands on experience through this program. There is an under 5s program that runs Mon & Wed mornings that needs help from 8.45am-11.30am.
