Volunteering in Your Community
There are many ways to make an impact while volunteering your time. UHC is touched and inspired by the selfless spirit of all those who volunteer in the community for our community.
What are UHC’s Volunteer Roles?
To keep UHC running smoothly, we need the help of many committed individuals with a wide variety of skillsets and interests. Below are UHC’s volunteer opportunities; let’s find a volunteer role that is right for you!
The Unifor Local 200 People’s Choice Pantry needs volunteers to help pick-up and drop-off food donations, package fresh produce and foodstuffs quickly, restock pantry shelves, and assist clients with choosing the items that their families’ need.
If you’re a foodie with a big heart, then Caesars Windsor Cares Community Kitchen needs your help to prepare and package food for clients who are visiting, as well as for those in the community who need assistance.
English Classes, Literacy and Basic Skills
Education is an incredibly powerful tool. If you have a passion for teaching, our students need help with reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills. Some of our students are new to the English language and will need a strong coach to support their learning efforts.
Our GED Preparation Program can help get you back into a learning mindset with confidence. Our instructors upgrade your knowledge in high school level Math, English, Social Studies, and Science so you can go on to obtain your grade twelve equivalency.
Care for Newcomer Children
UHC has created a safe space for newcomers children to play and learn while their parent or guardian works through our programs. Volunteers will assist our ECE workers with children ages 19 months – 6 years.
Shirley & Ray’s Community Garden
When the growing season comes, we need volunteers to assist clients with planting, maintaining, and harvesting their gardens.

Coats for Kids
Before each winter hits, our volunteers are actively working to collect, sort and distribute gently used winter coats to those in need. It’s the Canadian thing to do!
