VOLUNTEER

The work of Harvest Project depends on the generous volunteer efforts of individuals from across the North Shore. Bring you hands, heart and creative skills to you volunteering. Your contribution will change the lives of those visiting Harvest Project seeking a hand up. Note: As a result of the COVID crisis some available volunteer opportunities are changing. We are very happy to be gradually returning to on-site client appointments as we continue to monitor this challenging situation. To assist us in these efforts we are inviting applications to support clients in our Grocery depot and Clothing store, while observing safety protocols under our Communicable Disease Prevention Plan. 

We are currently recruiting for:
