Soup Run Volunteers – Standby list

We are currently looking for volunteers to have on our standby list.  How the standby list works is that if one of our volunteers cancels a shift, or we are short of volunteers one month, we email the people on the standby list to see if they are available to help.  Once a more permanent position becomes available, those on the standby list will be the first in line.  Permanent volunteers are rostered on once a month, though sometimes they may take on an extra shift if we are short.

Our soup run goes out on Thursdays and Sundays.  On the Thursday soup run we have 2 separate runs.  There is the normal run that goes to stops around Rockingham that our clients come to, then there is a home run where we go the homes of those who are unable to make it to the sup run stops and are struggling to make ends meet.  The prep shift starts at 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm at 23 Keppell Mews, and the soup run leaves there at 4:30 pm and returns around 7 pm.

We are always looking for people who can drive our vehicles on their shift.  We have a van and a station wagon, both vehicles are automatic.  Please note that for insurance purposes, volunteers must be over the age of 25 to drive our vehicles.

Also, please note that due to insurance restrictions, volunteers must be over the age of 16 to travel in our vehicles.  Volunteers under the age of 16 are welcome to help out with the prep shift from 3 pm – 4:30 pm.

If you are interested in going on our standby list, please send an email by filling in the form below, and our Volunteer Coordinator will email you the relevant information. If you haven’t haven’t received an email from us within 2 weeks, please check your junk folder.
