How will this project make a difference/why is it important?
Volunteers are essential in the running of CUPS programs, in breaking down social barriers for their clients, for creating memorable experiences for One World children and in creating normal socialization with clients to reduce social stigmas. Volunteering reduces the workload on full-time staff and provides an opportunity for them to tackle and improve day to day work projects and processes they otherwise would not get time to do that benefit vulnerable Calgarians. It frees up kitchen staff to go and purchase groceries and restock the kitchen while meals are being prepared and cooked by volunteers. It assists teaching staff to provide more creativity in activities and helps spread awareness of the work CUPS does
* Volunteers to dress comfortably, tie long hair back and wear closed-toe shoes.
