Impact Statement Soap for Hope Canada’s mission is to provide hope and dignity though hygiene. We reprocess waste from the hotel industry and give these high quality products another chance at life while supplying communities in need with essential ammenities. By ensuring nobody ever has to hope for soap, we empower individuals to achieve everything they are capable of. Through hygiene, we build communities, support each other, and bring together individuals.
Description We are looking for volunteers to come into the warehouse for a two hour minimum shift on November 30, 2021 #GivingTuesday! The Shifts are 10-12pm, 12-2pm, and 2-4pm. This will be a fun day of activity with volunteers working in groups of 6-10 in our large, spacious warehouse in Victoria West. We'll have music, food, and gifts as a thank you to those who take the time to come out and celebrate this annual giving day! We'll also be providing warehouse tours so you can get the full scope of what we do - from hygiene to linens to thriftshops and soap making, we do it all! That's why our theme is #SoapHasNoBoundaries this year.

Volunteers will help complete simple tasks like scraping soap, folding sheets, squeezing bottles, and matching slippers! We always receive great feedback for how fun our volunteer days are and a great opportunity to socialize!
COVID-19 Vaccination Required Yes
Training Details On Nov 30 we'll have seasoned volunteers training at each volunteer station and overseeing the tasks to ensure quality control. These lovely humans have been volunteering with us for a long time and we know you will adore them as much as we do!
Working Conditions The warehouse can be a bit drafty, so be sure to wear layers. Please note that some soaps and hygiene amenities can be scented, so please be cautious if you have an allergy to perfumes. We'll have coffee, snacks, and food available for our volunteers as well as a thank you gift.
