In support of Sea to Sky Community Services (SSCS), United Way Lower Mainland (UWLM) is currently recruiting local neighbourhood volunteers to assist with the SSCS distribution of SPARK education packages to homes in Squamish, prior to their upcoming online SPARK education program; https://seatoskykids.ca/resources/spark/ 

This is a 5-week volunteer role, beginning November 1, that requires approximately 1.5 – 3 hrs / week of volunteer time.  Once a week, on 5 Mondays, approximately 20 – 40 brown bag packages are to be picked up and distributed to families in Squamish neighbourhoods, before the end of day on Wednesday (ending Dec. 2).  Volunteers have 3 days to complete delivery of these packages. 

The “volunteer shift” is flexible, will take approximately 1.5 – 3 hrs. depending on addresses, and can be done when you have time between Monday – Wednesday, each week, for 5 weeks. 

Volunteers will require transportation (either by foot, bike or car) for the neighbourhood they will distribute to, and will need to sign a Sea to Sky Community Services “Volunteer Consent” Form.  

If you are interested to volunteer your time, in a “socially distanced” volunteer role (with packages that have not been touched for 72 hrs), we will follow-up with an email and phone call to answer any questions and confirm details.

Why should you volunteer for this opportunity?
If you have time, and are keen to support parent and caregiver education for families with children between 0 - 5 yrs, then Sea to Sky Community Services is in need of your help.  During the pandemic,  they have had to move all their SPARK education sessions online, and parents taking the course need their education resources in the packages, prior to each week's course on Thursday.  Packages are untouched for 72 hours, and deliveries are physically distant;  Once a week for 5 weeks.
