Want to make a big difference in Northumberland County by bringing peace of mind, kindness and a big box of nutritious food to Seniors in our community?
As the cost of living continues to rise, food choices for Seniors are being negatively impacted. To address the growing needs of Seniors, Northumberland Fare Share Food Bank is creating the new SOS Program. The SOS Program will provide fresh produce and other essential items to Senior Neighbours twice a month.
Volunteer now to get in on the ground floor of the new SOS Program. The Foodbank is seeking individuals with innovative ideas, happy smiles and a few free hours twice a month to help run this food box program. This unique program will launch in October 2022.
We are currently seeking Volunteers:
- To brainstorm the new program’s format and implementation
- For leadership roles
- To liaise with the community
- To pack food boxes
- To deliver food boxes to Seniors’ homes, or community agencies
Exhibition / Event set up: There’s a lot to learn about hanging an exhibition and the curatorial practices in a professional gallery, which you could learn by assisting our director and the team as they carefully change exhibitions. These happen all year round so get in touch if you’d like to have valuable insight into what goes on behind-the-scenes! You can also help set-up displays for one of our varied fundraisers, which also involves teamwork and an attention to detail. You might also be asked to lift or carry items, depending on the event.
Reception and Greeting: An integral part of events at Quest is the welcoming face our visitors see when they first arrive. If you feel you are a friendly, welcoming person then you could assist us by greeting visitors, taking down their information or assisting with ticketing. This role requires someone well-presented and able to multi-task.
Office / Administrative Support: There’s a lot that goes on behind-the-scenes to organize exhibitions and fundraisers! We are always seeking volunteers to help in the offices at Quest. If you are adept at multi-tasking, are comfortable making phone calls and have an eye for detail then this may be the perfect role!
Workshop / Educational Support: There are many different workshops held at Quest Art School + Gallery, and off-site, to a wide variety of students. We offer classes to children, youth and adults of all skill levels. If you are curious, patient and eager to lend a hand, then you might be perfect assisting one of our instructors as they lead a workshop.
Off-Site Events: Quest Art, as a charitable organization, is often invited to a wide range of events in the Midland-Penetang’, and sometimes wider, region. These vary by season and year, so depending on where you can get to, you could assist at one of these events. Please let us know your preferences as this would be a real asset to us at Quest when seeking location specific volunteers!
