Group Volunteering Application - Santas Depot

In order to keep volunteers and staff safe this season, the following changes have been put into place in accordance with AHS recommendations:

  • Smaller Groups - Group sizes have been reduced, we are able to accommodate groups of 4-10.  
  • No outside food can be brought into Santas Depot - beverages are permitted.
  • All volunteers will be required to complete a Fit for Work form upon arrival at Santas Depot. Staff have the ability to decline entry at any time. 
  • It is recommended to book a shift with a group that is already considered a cohort - due to space limitations, physical distancing will not be possible at all times.

ALL VOLUNTEERS MUST BE AT LEAST 16 YEARS OF AGE

  • Group volunteering shifts are scheduled between November 18-December 4, 2020.
  • Group volunteering is extremely popular and we often receive more requests than shifts available. In order to make it as fair as possible, a lottery draw may be held for any oversubscribed (typically evening) shifts.
  • Groups will be notified by November 6 regarding their shift time and date or waitlist status.  
  • Groups may be involved in some or all of the following activities: preparing gifts for individual children, bagging gifts for specific families, sorting toy donations, condensing sorted toy bins, and putting batteries in toys. 
  • Cancellation: Should we need to cancel your shift as much notice will be given as possible.  Some reasons for cancellation are when we have a lack of donations or we are all caught up based on the number of requests for toys.
