Come join us to enrich the life of homeless people for the Nightshift Street Ministries Society.  Nightshift is a registered, not-for-profit organization, caring for people through outreach, counselling, education, transitional housing as well providing meals.

Volunteers will be involved in serving hot meals, desserts, drinks, supporting for the clothing truck and mingling with the crowd to offer companionship. We need 12 CPA members, candidates and/or students. For just two hours of your time, you can help make a difference.

Few reminders to keep in mind:

  • Please arrive at the side warehouse door no later than 6:30pm; the leader will give a brief orientation, discuss/advise of emerging issues and assign duties – you are usually on your way home by 8:30pm.
  • No photos!  We do not encourage pictures during outreach, especially a full-on, identifiable photo of the friends we serve.  This is to protect their privacy as well as our liability from any claims against us that may occur as a result of a privacy infringement or exploitation.  If photos are requested, we ask the photographer to be sure only the backs of our street friends are showing; photos of the volunteers may be taken – please ask first.   There are opportunities for visiting groups to have their photo taken underneath our NightShift sign.
  • Please dress weather-accordingly and comfortably.  Meals are served outside in a parking lot (from the side of a serving trailer); if it is cold or wet, you should make sure you have a jacket.  Everyone must wear close-toed shoes (no sandals).
  • Remember!  The Team Leader is in charge, he/she is trained and experienced and is well versed on our outreach policies – please remember to fold under the Leader’s direction.

(donations of non-perishable food, personal care items, clothing or cash welcomed at the event)
