If you have time on your hands and would like to help the community during the COVID-19 pandemic, you can volunteer with us. Volunteering is easy, but it does require a good sense of cleanliness and attention to details. We want to keep you and the people you serve safe, that’s our priority. As such, you will be asked to make sure you wash your hands before and after shopping, use hand sanitizer when possible, refrain from touching your face and do NOT volunteer if you are feeling under the weather. If you have a mask, goggles and gloves, you will be given priority. If you don’t, please wear a bandana or a homemade mask. They do not offer 100% protection, but they are much better than nothing. We do not discriminate, but if you are over 55, or have preexisting health issues, for your own safety, we will not accept your application at this point.
We are working with the Optimist Club of Cornwall to provide our volunteers with gas cards and masks in the near future.
