What Happens if You Post an Offer to Volunteer Here?

This update is over 30 days old.

You can see we have a button on our site for people who want to volunteer.

A big THANK YOU to those who have already used it.

If you have registered on our site to be a volunteer, but you haven't heard from us, please don't let that stop you from volunteering! We will need people to help us move some donated items from place to place when people are ready to receive them, but we're not at that stage right now.

If you want to help with clean-up right now, you have a big choice of places in need. There is a great list on YYCHelps.ca http://www.yychelps.ca/volunteer-opportunities/ with needs from several different places. You can take your pick.

Separately, on the Samaritan's Purse website http://www.samaritanspurse.ca/southern-alberta/ you can register as a volunteer.

Both sites have additional information about help available to people affected by the floods in Alberta.

So, thank you for registering as a volunteer with Alberta.Recovers.org. We appreciate it and when we are ready to call upon you, we will. Many of the donations we are dealing with at the moment are things that people will need in future as they rebuild, and we think we'll need some help from you when the time comes. Until then, we hope you'll find a volunteer opportunity to suit you.

From the Alberta.Recovers.org website team, here to help – just like you.

  • Thank you Jill for the update on volunteering. There are many great opportunities to put your skills to work. As Jill mentioned Samaritan's Purse is also gathering volunteers to assist with the clean-up efforts. When you log in to their site, you can register as an individual or as a group. They have already deployed thousands of people to assist.

    Thank you for volunteering to assist in the Alberta flood recovery efforts. As people return to their homes, we will require volunteers to help in the clean-up and recovery of flooded homes and basic operations for volunteer deployment. Please be advised that we will only deploy volunteers once needs assessments and safety concerns have been addressed. Thanks for volunteering!

    I am registering as an Individual as an Organization
