NEW: Grocery Shopping Volunteer Wanted During COVID-19

Grocery Shopping Volunteer: Supporting Vulnerable Senior and Refugee Families in Surrey, BC during COVID-19

During the current COVID-19 crisis, more and more people are self isolating and unable to rely on supports through friends and families.

If you are interested, please email us at volunteer@dcrs.ca as soon as possible with your name, contact information and put “Grocery Shopping Volunteer” in the subject line.

Please note, we have strict protocols in place to ensure the safety of all clients, staff and community members, including volunteers, participating in this service. A successful criminal record check and screening is required to become a volunteer. Volunteers will be reimbursed for the cost of mileage and personal protective equipment (if required).
