Civic Square & Kensington Park



Volunteers needed!

Temperatures are set to soar yet again! Together with the Extreme Weather Heat Response team of Taskforce to End Homelessness in Burnaby, we urgently need volunteers for the cooling centres at Civic Square and Kensington Park from Tuesday Aug. 23 to Thursday Aug. 25.

There are 5 shifts a day and each shift needs 2 volunteers:
10:30 - 11:00 am (Set up)
11:30 - 01:30 pm
01:30 - 03:30 pm
05:30 - 06:00 pm (Take down)

During the day, volunteers hand out water, provide wet towels, visit people, and try and make everyone feel as comfortable as possible. All supplies will be in a bin on site which will be opened by City or Taskforce personnel. There will be pop-up tents, chairs, tables, drinking cups and hoses, games etc.

Please scroll down to sign up! Let's come and help those in need to keep cool and spend time together!
