Oak Avenue Neighbourhood Hub Society is looking for volunteers! We are a neighbourhood house connecting and bringing people from all walks of life together to thrive in our homes, communities and city. Our demographic is diverse and our programs meet community members where they are at- whether they are seniors, youth, or young families, newcomers or long-time residents, and low-income or in difficult transitions. We are looking for new volunteers to assist with some of our Hub programs, most importantly our Community Dinners and our Donation Collection. If you are interested in volunteering with us, however the two events below do not work for you, we are always in need of volunteers who can be called on to help out with special events, such as our garage sale, or fundraising drives.

Our community dinners happen every second Saturday of the month, from 4-6pm. They are a free meal which we arrange for any and all members of our community who wish to attend, and during the months of July and August, our community dinners take the form of a BBQ! We are looking for volunteers who can come in Saturday afternoon and help set up (preparing the tables and chairs, cutlery, plates, Greeting or directing event attendees, and assisting with food preparation), and then help take down at the end. This position would likely run from about 2pm-6pm on the Saturdays in question, which means it’s only a four hour commitment a month.
Our donation program run every Tuesday morning between 10am-2pm, where people bring in items which they would like to donate and our volunteers sort through it to determine what we can keep, and what is being sent to other non-profits. Volunteers would come in during the allotted time and assist with the sorting. Lunch is provided for our volunteers for free. This would ideally be a weekly commitment of about 4 hours a week.
If any of these positions seem at all interesting to you, please send us an email, we are always eager to have new volunteers join our team! If the positions above do not work with your availability, but you still wish to get involved you can send us an email and we can see how you can help our community. Anyone is able to volunteer with us, all we are looking for is a friendly face and the willingness to help! Due to the populations which we work with, potential volunteers will have to complete a criminal record check (Don’t worry, this can be filled out online!). Thank you so much for your interest, we really hope you consider joining our team! For more information on our programs you can visit our website at oanh.ca
