Get Involved

Interested in volunteering with
The Lending Cupboard?

We have a variety of positions to meet your interests and skill sets, and we provide the training you need so you will have a satisfying volunteer experience.

Front: Do you want to use your people skills? Front line volunteers at The Lending Cupboard receive training to answer client questions and process requests for loans of medical equipment. Your friendly, efficient and compassionate communication skills will help connect people with the medical equipment they need, when they need it.

Back: Want to work behind the scenes? Our back room volunteers receive training to sanitize medical equipment to Provincial health and safety standards. Your work will require bending, kneeling and stretching. And if you’re handy with minor repairs, we can use your skills to keep the equipment functioning smoothly for those who need it.

Time commitment: Volunteers are needed on Monday, Wednesday and Friday between 9:00am to 4:30pm when The Lending Cupboard is open to the public. Morning and afternoon shifts are available. Only have a few hours? Only available part of the year? We still want to hear from you.

At the Lending Cupboard, we supply medical equipment to central Albertans.

Join our Board of Directors

Are you a caring, compassionate individual that is looking to become involved with an organization that is making significant impact in the lives of thousands of central Albertans every year? The Lending Cupboard is looking for you! As an engaged, dedicated team, our Board is guided by a set of principles that places high value on our people and our clients and is committed to operating in an accountable, sustainable manner.

You provide your time, we provide the training!

No experience needed, some standing & bending involved, & light lifting. If you enjoy giving back to your community, come join our team, we’d love to meet you.
