VOLUNTEER INFORMATION

  • Team leaders will;
    • Check in and receive a route package including;
      • A map of assigned route
      • Directions to your route
      • Safety instructions
      • Survey questionnaire
    • Pick up supplies including;
      • Signs - for your vehicle to identify you as part of the food drive
      • Door hangers - to be left on the door knobs of the homes who do not answer
      • Bottles water and snack bars
      • Bags for collecting the donated items at the door
      • Boxes to be filled on the route
  • Take time to review the parameter of your route in order to stay within your boundaries
  • Drive to route and begin canvassing.  We ask that you DO NOT start knocking on doors until 6:00pm in order to allow the residents to get home from work.
  • Ensure that all homes are canvassed.  If there is no answer, leave a Door Hanger.
  • Many homes will already have food set out for pick up.
  • It can be beneficial to leave a bag with the person who answers the door and pick it up a few minutes later.  This will give the resident time to fill it.
  • Transfer the items into the boxes.  Please ensure that box lids can be closed.
  • We accept cash or cheque donations.  Please turn them into the dispatch team at the drop off location.
  • If you realize that you will not be able to complete your route before dark (8:00pm), please call your dispatcher early enough so that we can attempt to dispatch a second team to help.  If no help is available please drive the remainder of your route to pick up any food left out for us.
  • Once completed proceed to the Drop Off Location.  This year the drop off will be at St. Patrick Catholic School, 7810 Poplar Dr, Grande Prairie, AB T8V 4T8.
  • Complete the survey and return it with your package to the dispatchers.
  • Be prepared to wait in the cue as we unload the vehicles.  With 130 vehicles set to arrive, there may be a little bit of a line.  Hot dogs, hamburgers, and drinks will be available while you wait.
