Toronto Drop In

St John the Compassionate Mission - A long-standing inner city Mission in South Riverdale Toronto, serving the community for over 30 years. We run breakfast, lunch and dinner programs available to the most vulnerable people in our community. Please, come out and help us, to help those in need... the generosity of our volunteers are paramount to our work!

St John's is currently seeking one regular volunteer (retired preferred), who is committed to volunteering with us on a regular bases, once or twice per week at the times below. What we strive to build and maintain here, is an inclusive community, and so, we are hoping, the person will not only be a volunteer, but someone who will become a member of our community.

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!

So please, come out, and witness something beautiful! At St John the Compassionate Mission.
