Thrift Store Volunteer - Non Profit

    Toronto, ON

COVID-19 notes:

  • We have relaxed criteria for posting volunteer opportunities due to the urgent need for COVID-19 Response. Volunteers are responsible for confirming the legitimacy of the group or organization(s) they are working with. Never hand over money or confidential information to groups looking for volunteers.
  • Please confirm that the organization you want to volunteer with can ensure your safety.



We need volunteers who would like to work in our thrift store on Danforth near Woodbine. The store operates to support the work of our long standing inner-city Drop-In, St John the Compassionate Mission.

At St John's Mission, we try to feed not only the person's stomach but their heart as well, as we find that people in a city that is impersonal, are often more hungry for human connection than they are for a meal...We don't count the number of people we serve as much as understanding that each person welcomed is unique and irreplaceable and worthy of our attention and care.

Volunteering at the mission in whatever capacity must come from this profound sense of what makes us human. Help us to help those in need!
