What you can do

Volunteer your time for our community

Would you like to start volunteering with us at Morningstar? We can’t wait to get you started, but there are a few details to take care of first.

Steps to Becoming a Volunteer

1. Speak with Anne
Anne, our Volunteer Coordinator, is in the office Mondays and Thursdays from 9-4 if you would like to speak with her about roles and availability. Stop in, reach out online, or give our office a call at (613) 354-6355

2. Complete a Volunteer Application
A volunteer application package must be completed prior to volunteering with us; a package can be picked up anytime Monday – Friday from 9 – 4.
The application process also requires a police check which is conducted at no cost with a provided letter from Morningstar. Note: A record of previous offenses does not necessarily mean an applicant will be disqualified from volunteering.

3. Sign up for a shift
Once you have successfully submitted a volunteer application, you can sign up for a shift! Shifts are scheduled through Signup.com.
