One of our members Darius Sunga, is an active volunteer of the Rapid Response Team, with GlobalMedic – a Toronto based charity, providing humanitarian rapid response at the wake of disasters and crisis, locally and abroad. Visit the link for more information such as programs and responses. He is looking for help from the community.
The organization operates mainly on donations, sponsorships and the strength of its volunteers.
On Saturday, October 13, they could use some volunteers with packing 15,000 emergency meals for Syrian refugees. Details of the event are in the link below.
I understand how valuable our Saturdays are spent with family and our own chores at times.
Hoping you’d feel this to be an excellent feel-good team activity we can all share.
If you decide to volunteer – Thank You!
It will be much appreciated if you can stay the full duration but you do not need to – but hope you can spend at least a couple of hours of your Saturday afternoon.
You do not need to use the Sign Up form in the link below. You can email Darius at email@example.com. If you plan to bring a spouse/child let Darius know as well. Please let him know by this weekend if possible just so I can get a count and when to expect. There are other groups already committed so don’t be worried about having to do the 15000 food kit number.
“Please wear warehouse appropriate clothing that you do not mind getting dirty. Volunteers will be asked to remove jewelry such as watches, bracelets, and large earrings and rings so it might be best to leave these at home. We will provide hair nets and gloves to all volunteers. Bring a water bottle and lunch/snacks.”
