"I think it's important to support my community. I enjoy the interaction with the people I'm helping. They are good people; life just hasn't gone well for some of them. Anything I can do for them I'm happy to do."
Volunteer with Gravenhurst Against Poverty
It is only through the dedication and hard work from hundreds of volunteers throughout the community that G.A.P. is able to function. From garden caretakers to food delivery drivers to our Steering Committee and everything in-between, there is a reason we consider ourselves a grassroots organization.
We are ALWAYS looking for more volunteers and creating new ways for people to get involved and make a difference in our community. If you would like to volunteer, the first step is signing up by clicking the Green Button below. You'll be directed to a sign-up page where we can collect your contact information, your availability and hear about how you are interested in being involved. From there, someone from our team will reach out and let you know what the next steps are.
"It's nice to know that if someone has a need that I am helping to meet that need. I'm just following the golden rule principle. When I see others helping too, it gives me pride in my community knowing that so many others are working together for the same purpose."
