About Volunteering with Main Street Project
Volunteers are an essential part of Main Street Project’s operations. There are a variety of tasks and duties volunteers are expected to perform, based on the agency and client needs and at the coordinator’s discretion. Volunteers are expected to work independently, as well as harmoniously with other volunteers, staff and management. Volunteers are required to provide an updated criminal record and vulnerable sector check and are responsible for the cost of these checks.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to COVID-19, our volunteer opportunities are limited at this time.
All in-kind donations to Main Street Project are received, sorted and distributed to Main Street Project programs through our donation room. As a volunteer, you may help sort, fold and organize clothing, hygienic products, and all other donations.
Food Bank and Essentials Market
MSP holds food bank services for community members every Thursday morning. As a volunteer, you may help sort, shelve and organize delivery, assist community members with food care packages, collecting grocery food and supplies.
