This organization's needs

  • Shelter Movers is a volunteer-based organization that provides moving and storage services at no cost to women and children experiencing abuse. We are in the process of opening a chapter in the Montreal region and are in need of movers/drivers. Volunteer Movers are the core of the organization by assisting in each of the three types of moves: Urgent Exit, Escorted Move, and Resettlement Move. In a group of 2-4 movers, volunteers will load/unload client's belongings into cargo van and transport client to predetermined location. Movers who have a valid driver’s license are welcome to register as drivers. This is a great opportunity for someone who wants to make a big impact in a small amount of time. Each move is only 2-4 hours. Please send an email ( with your name, phone number, e-mail and a few sentences of why you are interested in volunteering at Shelter Movers. | Place of work: variés/ varied Read more...
