VOLUNTEER WITH US

Without our volunteers, Sydney’s Inner West community would not get the support it needs.

Every year hundreds of dedicated volunteers contribute their time, energy, skills and hearts in support of the Rev. Bill Crews Foundation.

People volunteer for different reasons. Many have a strong sense of community and a desire to give something back whilst others seek a good way to meet likeminded people.

Our volunteer support means that we can provide the best possible service to our guests and we simply could not operate without our volunteers.

HOW OUR VOLUNTEERS HELP

You can volunteer solo or as part of a group. So whether you are from a school, community or corporate group, we would love to hear from you.

Our volunteers help prepare and serve meals in our Loaves and Fishes free restaurant in Ashfield, they travel across Sydney in our food vans or they create emergency food parcels in our warehouse.

Volunteers also assist behind the scenes, offering invaluable administrative assistance or support in our Social, Health and Wellbeing centre.

If you invest the time and energy to volunteer, you are investing in yourself just as much as in the causes you support.
