Harvest Celebration Volunteers Needed

We are looking for volunteers to help us on Sunday, October 5th during our Harvest Celebration Open House.

We are seeking people who can help with set-up/clean-up of the tent, tables and signs, cooking in the kitchen, serving food, helping with art and garden activities for children and youth, etc.

We are also seeking a community member who would be willing to talk briefly about their experience with the community kitchen during our speeches.

Set-up will begin at 11:30am on Sunday. Please let me know if you are able to lend a helping hand.

If you cannot volunteer, I hope you will still show your support for East York Neighbourhood Initiatives by attending the event and taking part in the festivities.
