The below info and sign up link was sent to us from the community group behind the Rebecca Schofield playground build, June 4 to June 10.
‘We need over 2,000 volunteers to make this happen. Please sign up for as many shifts as you can and recruit family, friends, coworkers, neighbours. There is a job for everyone!
We are using a web based scheduler to organize shifts for volunteers. The link below will take you to our website that will allow you to choose from available shifts. Note: SignUp.com does not share your email address with anyone and you will not need to create an account. If you would prefer to be signed up manually, please respond to this email with your choice of shift and we will take care of it.
Volunteer shifts are 8 to 12; 12:30 to 5; 5:30 to 9. June 4 to June 10 (there are no evening shifts Sun or Mon)
Meals are provided if you would like to stay after your shift.
1. Choose the category you are interested in helping with and click View.
Childcare volunteers must have a police record check arranged through the FLB office. It is a free and quick process.
Skilled labour is anyone who is comfortable using a circular saw, measuring etc.
Unskilled labour is everyone else. Tasks will be assigned based on physical ability, skill, and needs of the build at the time. There is a job for everyone!
