Volunteer

CCSS is grateful to have a dedicated team of volunteers who help with food programs, after-school activities, bingo, community events and more. Our programs & events would not be possible without their generous contribution of time.

Interested in joining the team? Check out our current list of volunteer opportunities below and contact us with questions or to express interest.

Current Volunteer Opportunities

Food Share: Fridays 9- 11 AM. The Food Share provides bi-weekly deliveries of Healthy Food Hampers to  Cumberland households experiencing food insecurity. Volunteers are needed to help with sorting and packing boxes, and delivering to houses (vehicle and drivers license required).

Bingo Callers:  Commitment of one Wednesday a month 6:15- 8:30 PM. No experience necessary. You only need to be comfortable talking into a microphone.

Event Support: Help with a variety of events throughout the year including Spring Cut A Thon, Kids Disco and Thunderballs.

Bike Club Ride Leaders: Thursdays 2:45- 5 PM. Spring and Fall. Offered in partnership with UROC this after-school program provides an opportunity for students of all skill levels to ride in a supportive group setting. Ride leaders are responsible for leading a small group (with another ride leader) and encouraging a positive environment.

Volunteer Ride Leaders must:

  • Provide a Criminal Record Clearance
  • Be familiar with the Cumberland Trail Network
  • Have the ability to handle minor mechanical bike repairs (ie. change a flat tube, adjust brakes)
  • Be a current UROC member
  • Enjoy working with children & youth
  • Current First Aid Certification is an asset.

If you are interested in volunteering with Bike Club, please send us an email and tell us about yourself – your experience, favourite trail and availability. Volunteers don’t need to commit to being there every week (although we sure wouldn’t complain if you did!).
