Volunteer opportunities available
Help Petites Soeurs de Pauvres, an order of nuns who provide housing, meals and much more to 100 elderly people in the Marolles neighbourhood, continue their amazing work. The kitchen team needs the help of 3 volunteers to assist with the food prep. Then volunteers will help with some maintenance around the residence before helping distribute the food you prepped!
Know where homeless people in our city have their regular spots, create routes that connect each spot, and walk those routes with volunteers on a regular basis to get to know our friends in the streets. We will be equipped with sandwiches and other useful items that we can hand out while we mark their spot in a map, and hopefully already match them with a name.
La Porte d’Ulysse is a shelter for homeless refugees and transmigrants managed by the BXL refugees (La Platforme Citoyenne de Soutien aux Réfugiés). Volunteers are needed to help do some clothes sorting and help with the midday food distribution. As a volunteer your help is extremely valuable as the centre is almost entirely managed by volunteers!
Every week, we go to SamuSocial centre at Gulledelle to help the children living there with their homework in our project Gulledelle Homework Club. But this we are having a fun day! We are organising a day to play games and do some amazing crafts with the children. Get ready to share your crafting/painting skills, listen to lots of laughs and share a happy moment with the brightest children in town!
Join this online Green Brainstorming session to help Serve the City plan our garden! Together you will explore a few ideas and visions, including what type of vegetables would be suitable for the local climate, what factors need to be considered and much more. This session will help us develop a garden project which we hope to be able to use to feed those in need!
Help Petites Soeurs de Pauvres, an order of nuns who provide housing, meals and much more to 100 elderly people in the Marolles neighbourhood, continue their amazing work. Volunteers are needed to lend a helping hand with distributing an afternoon snack and help set up a concert activity. For many of the elderly residents, these events are the highlight of their week, so you will be making a very big impact by helping prep for the event!
