We have filled all the volunteer positions at The Snowsuit Fund for this season! Please contact us in September if you wish to volunteer next year; we begin distribution the first week of October.

We could not be as effective as we are if it were not for the tremendous effort made by our volunteers. The Snowsuit Fund Depot operates with a skeleton crew of seasonal employees, plus one full-time general manager. During the six months of the year in which our Depot is open to serve clients (September – February), volunteers of all ages and walks of life are required in order to help ensure the smooth operation of the snowsuit distribution process. Every season, we need over 500 volunteers putting in roughly 4,300 volunteer hours to help us out. Click here for information on volunteer jobs at the Depot. If you are able to commit some time to helping us at the Depot, please complete our Volunteer Application and then contact us at (613) 746-5143 to arrange for an interview.
