This is an opportunity for us to show the kind of love for humanity that abides in this beautiful city of Aberdeen to the newest members (immigrants) during their integration and inclusion process. Helping in the way of supporting families and individuals in need of these food items due to lack of funding, no job, or even homeless situation (with no recourse to public funding from the government), amidst other integration and inclusion struggles will go a very long way.
Most of these beneficiary members include men, women, children, and young ones, who are not necessarily asylum seekers or refugees but immigrants who have come to our beautiful host city and made it home. The cultural, social, and moral differences that exist between their home country and Aberdeen (host community), have made settling (integration and inclusion) more difficult for these members. No job equates to no money, which also equates to no food. Mamacita Foundation, as part of our social responsibility is partnering with other organisations and working endlessly to ensure a swift integration and inclusion process for these members of our community.
In our bid to manage food waste reduction as well as get it to persons in need of these food items, we are calling on you, yes you, to join us as we work with @CFINE, @ Fairshare, and @ Coop group in reaching out to persons.
Your service to humanity is always appreciated and we look forward to working with you in supporting others in need. Nobody should feel alone.
A fantastic opportunity to help and make a real difference. All volunteer support is greatly appreciated. For more details please contact Vivian Draghici at email: email@example.com or telephone: 07449826988.
*Volunteer with Charlie House and give the gift of time*
Thousands of volunteers across the North-east of Scotland make an amazing contribution to the third sector and provide vital hours of support to charities and the families which they support. Our volunteers are an integral and invaluable part of Team Charlie House. Every single hour they contribute makes a difference to the babies, children, young people and families we support.
As we develop our range of services to support even more families across the region, we are looking to expand our team of Charlie House volunteers. Some of our volunteers gift an occasional hour or two, some a whole day, and some make a regular commitment every week or month. We have a wide range of volunteering opportunities available for each and every individual, based on their available time.
To find out more about volunteering with Charlie House and the full range of current ways you can help and make a real difference through volunteering please visit: https://www.charliehouse.org.uk/support-us/volunteer-with-us/ or contact us at E Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Kincorth Community Centre Hub has great volunteer opportunities to assist with a range of activities at the Hub.
Volunteer roles include supporting our busy community cafe, which has rapidly taken off, we currently open 9.30 -2.30, but our aim is to run a breakfast and supper club, as well as have the cafe open for activities in the evening.
We have a diverse community that has a lot to offer e.g.: art classes/exercise group/dance class/music lessons and we are always open to new ideas-we are more or less a blank canvass.
Excellent support and relevant guidance is provided to all volunteers. Level 2 Hygiene Certificate will be offered to those who want to volunteer/cook in the café. Any other training would be reviewed and provided if proved relevant.
A fantastic, enjoyable opportunity to volunteer and help make a real difference for people and the community. All volunteers are greatly appreciated.

Devana Parish Church (formerly Ferryhill Parish Church)
Devana Parish Church (formerly Ferryhill Parish Church) operates a great community café in the heart of Ferryhill, which creates a welcoming environment for those who attend for a morning cuppa and also for those who volunteer their services.
We are requiring helpers, who can assist in the coffee shop, as it is a very popular meeting place. Helpers are required to volunteer with the team in the general running of the coffee shop. e.g. setting tables, serving coffees, clearing tables and generally tidying up.
The café is located in the church but people do not need to be church members to be volunteers-everyone is welcome.
All volunteers are welcome and greatly appreciated. Support, mentoring and learning opportunities will be available as and when required. A brilliant opportunity to help and make a real difference in the community.
For more details please contact: Rita King (Convenor of the Friendship Team) E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01224 213093
