(Volunteer) Weekly Grocery Hamper Program: Delivery Driver
Every Thursday the NPNA puts together free, weekly grocery hampers made up of produce, bread, dairy, some non-perishable items and eggs. The hampers are made between 10:00am-1:00pm, and delivered by volunteers between 11:30am-1pm. We are grateful to be able to use the Community Hall at First Met Church (932 Balmoral) as our home base of operations.
We are in search of volunteers to fill the following role:
- Hamper Delivery Driver: Thursdays, 11:30am-1:30pm
- Pick up completed hampers at First Met Church (932 Balmoral) and deliver to households in and near North Park. This route takes about 1 hour, requires a vehicle, and involves some lifting and carrying. Volunteers will have the same route each week!
- We are looking for two new delivery drivers!
If you are available to help out with this role, please get in touch using the contact form below. Thank you!!
(Volunteer) Land Use Committee Members
Are you interested in land use issues in North Park? Consider joining the Community Association Land Use Committee (CALUC) to stay up to date with developments happening in the neighbourhood.
CALUC members may expect to help coordinate and attend neighbourhood meetings with developers/proponents and provide feedback on proposed developments. You can also expect to work with the City and other local residents on community land use plans and initiatives.
Other roles/activities are dependent on members’ interests, skills, and time commitment.
We welcome a wide range of interests and skills on the land use committee. You do not need to have prior experience or knowledge of land use matters to get involved!
