We would all love to change the world if we could. What better place to start than in our own backyard.

Hands In Service has opportunities, for those who want to make a difference, to give love back through tangible ways that can transform the lives of others. Washing dishes, sweeping the floor, doing the laundry, or making a simple meal; these are all basic activities that most are able to do without thinking; without even batting an eye. Yet these same activities are the source of stress, anxiety, physical pain and even debilitation for many others who are unable to perform them; who have no one to help.

Our volunteers are passionate people who have a heart to lift up the vulnerable and bring hope to the forgotten. They give of themselves because they have something to give; they have been loved in simple ways that many have not.

They are not the wealthy, nor do they have all the time in world. They are moms and dads, brothers and sisters, colleagues, friends, acquaintances and even strangers.

They are people just like you.

Energetic Hands Volunteer

Energetic Hands is a long-term cleaning and cooking support program for Hands In Service clients who are unable to perform basic household tasks for themselves. Volunteers cook and clean for clients on an ongoing basis, providing practical and relational support.

Time Commitment: 4 hours/month (3 month commitment requested)

Blitz Team Volunteer

In teams of 2 or more people, Blitz volunteers perform one-time cleaning assignments for clients; clearing out the clutter while restoring a sense of hope and dignity to those who desperately need it.

This is a great opportunity for families, teams, friends, youth groups, or individuals who wish to serve on an occasional basis but cannot commit to a consistent schedule.

Time Commitment: Flexible 2-3 hour assignments depending on volunteer availability.

Food Hamper Delivery

Many Food Bank clients have physical disabilities or mobility problems that do not allow them to pick up their food hampers on-site.

Hands In Service Food Bank Drivers deliver food from community food banks to clients who are housebound. They also deliver Kelowna Food Bank Tiny Bundles: a program for new mothers with children from pregnancy through to age 1 that provides weekly supplemental food and infant supplies.

Time Commitment: Approximately 2 hour/month on Thursday morning between 10am and 2pm. (3 month commitment requested)

  • Hands in Service is a faith-based organization. While as Christians, we approach serving as a love response to God, we recognize that not all our volunteers will have the same relationship with God. It is our desire to work with anyone who wants to help us make a difference. What we ask is that in a volunteer capacity and while representing Hands in Service, there is recognition and honor of the faith statement. Volunteers are asked not to present or act from any alternate faith position and to conduct themselves with integrity and wholesome behavior and language for the edification of all concerned.
    From Scripture we believe: There is only one sovereign God who manifests as three - Father, Son and Holy Spirit - or Trinity. He is infinite and eternal, He has always been God and He is the Creator of everything that exists. All people are guilty of wrong acts and thoughts. This nature separates humans from God's holiness but not from His love! Jesus is fully God and fully man. Jesus was conceived through the power of the Holy Spirit; the birth child of the Virgin Mary, and lived a perfect life. Because of His love for us, Jesus Christ became our representative and substitute, dying as the payment for our wrong actions and thoughts and was physically raised from the dead after three days. Those who choose to enter into relationship with Jesus Christ as sovereign over their lives and accept His death in their place receive forgiveness and restored relationship to God the Father and will live with Him forever.
