Street Friends Helping the Homeless Aberdeen Volunteers

Description

Street Friends Helping the Homeless Aberdeen is working towards a brighter future for homeless people, vulnerable and people in poverty.

Here at Street Friends, we know that sometimes all it takes to change the world is a little support. Volunteering is one of the simplest ways to help out our cause. We believe the best way for our initiatives to be successful is for the community to actively get involved. We have registered with ACVO/Volunteer Aberdeen and Aberdeen City Council, plus are insured for our volunteering operations.

People can help volunteering in aspects such as checking, sorting and packing food donations, as a volunteer driver, outreach volunteers at our stalls distributing food to people who are homeless and providing much needed support. All help makes a real difference and is greatly appreciated.

If you want to help or for more details please contact us at email: admin@streetfriendshelpingthehomeless.com or visit our website at https://www.streetfriendshelpingthehomeless.com
