Get your day off to a great start! Bring your family, your friends or your coworkers to the DI to serve the most important meal of the day for the 600 guests we serve each morning. This opportunity will brighten your day!
Start your morning by volunteering with other community-minded individuals who love giving back! Serving a meal is a great way to be someone for Calgarians who are experiencing homelessness.
Sponsoring breakfast ensures that guests of the DI start their morning with a hot, hearty breakfast rather than our standard cold offering. Add to the sponsorship a volunteer opportunity to serve as a team, and you can leave a lasting positive impact on one another and the guests you serve. Providing support through a warm smile, nutritious meal and community service makes Calgary stronger. Please note, your sponsored meal and volunteer dates may be on two separate days. Sponsorship Cost $1000

Clothing Room Volunteers allow Calgarians impacted by homelessness to benefit from the constant flow of apparel donations the Calgary Drop-In & Rehab Centre receives from the community. By helping to stock our Free Clothing Store, they ensure our clients are able to stay warm and dry. These volunteers thrive on turning chaos into order. They are organized, efficient, and don't mind a little bit of heavy lifting.
