COVID-19: SOURCES will continue to serve the most vulnerable members of our community. In order to do this while maintaining the safety, health and well-being of our staff and volunteers, our executive team has made the decision to suspend or modify in-person services until further notice. There are some exceptions. Programs deemed to be providing essential human services will continue to provide direct or modified services to clients.

We want to thank all the people who have contacted us wanting to volunteer with SOURCES during these uncertain times. Until further notice, many of our volunteer-based programs are suspended or operating day-by-day until we are provided with updates by our governing bodies or community partners.
Volunteer-based programs that continue to operate are being supported by redeployed SOURCES staff. As such, we are evaluating regularly how volunteers can support our community.
If you are interested in volunteering, we recommend you visit BC211 and United Way who have launched portals to connect volunteers with individuals and organizations in need. Please visit their websites to find current opportunities to help.
For more information about future volunteer opportunities with SOURCES, please email volunteerservices@sourcesbc.ca. Our Volunteer Services office will contact you as soon as possible.
We are so grateful to serve such a thoughtful community. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

At Sources, we believe that volunteerism is fundamental to social wellness and that the spirit of helping is important to both community and personal development.

While many of us volunteer our time and skills to others in our day-to-day lives, we often fail to see the true impact of our support. We communicate with our volunteers to keep everyone informed about our activities and how their contributions truly make an impression on a personal level.

A supportive, positive group that helps me acquire clothes, food and friendships. Offering places to go to get information and assistance. How wonderful that these women give their time and energy to caring for those in trauma, the disabled and those with no hope. Thank you.Woman’s Place client

Sources’ Volunteer Centre is designed to support social wellness for individuals and communities through volunteerism. We assist individuals to find volunteer opportunities that match their personal needs and goals. In the process, we aim to promote the spirit of helping and raise awareness about the benefits of volunteerism in our community.

I enjoy the people I work with. It’s a younger crowd. Keeps me learning new things. I feel like I am doing something with my life even though I am retired. I am also making an impact on me. I am becoming more aware of the suffering people are experiencing. I am being more empathetic and grateful than ever in my life.Sources Volunteer

Community Harvest VolunteerExpand More Info

The Community Harvest Program is a new initiative by Sources to reduce food waste in our communities.  We envision a community that shares our excess of fresh food to others who might otherwise go without.  As we watch a harvest journey from being picked off a tree to being served with a family meal, we have reduced food waste and created a healthier community for all.

Community Harvest Volunteers are passionate about reducing food waste and addressing hunger in the City of Surrey.  Community Harvest Volunteers are the main link in bringing fresh foods to communities who need it the most by picking fruit from local trees and delivering the harvest to designated locations.  Of the gleaned harvest, one-third respectively is given to the home-owners, volunteers and community organizations such as the local Food Bank or meal programs.
