You can click on this Volunteer Needs Overview to see the areas where we are still looking for help or click on the blue coloured links on the left sidebar to see a description of what's involved in each of the different volunteer tasks and to see if we need more volunteers in that particular area. To sign up as a volunteer you can send an e-mail to to let us know which position you are interested in and for which shift.

Below is a brief overview of what our dinner is like.


Each year we serve 200-300 guests with 2 different meal sittings (2:00pm, and 4:00pm).  But we're more than just a place for a home-made turkey dinner on Christmas.  It's a place to hang out all day long or to drop in and out.  There is a lounge area with baked treats and drinks, live Christmas music, games, and conversation.  This is for anyone who is looking for a place to go, meet people and have a good meal.   A coat and boot check is provided. Please bring slippers or heavy socks to wear while inside as boots must be checked.  There is no need to let us know ahead of time if you are planning on coming.

Volunteers:  Please contact to let us know which job/shift you are interested in and we will sign you up! 

This is a huge volunteer effort with over 100 people involved in various roles.   Many of our volunteers have made it a part of their Christmas tradition.  When you come downtown on Christmas day things are pretty quiet, but once inside there is a warm,  joyous and festive atmosphere here.  Many would say it is the highlight of their Christmas day.  Why not give it a try?  The menu of links at the left of this page will guide you through the various tasks we are looking for help with.  If you would like to help you can send us an e-mail at or sign up via email using this sign-up form
