About Global Medic
The David McAntony Gibson Foundation, which operates as GlobalMedic, is a registered Canadian charity that has provided disaster relief and life-saving humanitarian aid since 2002. We were founded based on the idea that aid could be delivered more effectively and efficiently. GlobalMedic’s goal has always been to get the right aid to the right people at the right time. Professional emergency workers along with other professional and skilled volunteers help deliver our programs to the people who need it most.
One of the ways we are able to keep our costs down and deliver aid more efficiently is by using volunteers to assemble aid here in Canada. Most of the time, we pack aid in our warehouse in Etobicoke, but occasionally we will hold events at other locations around the GTA and even in other cities across Canada. Volunteers will usually either be assembling Family Emergency Kits or Emergency Food Kits, but sometimes we will ask for help with local deliveries, manning booths at conferences, and other assorted tasks. The duties at events vary; you could be pouring a scoop of lentils into a funnel, packaging recycled soap, taping boxes, or stickering bags! There is something to do for everyone, and it is a great opportunity to come out and meet people, work hard for a few hours, and do some good.
Please note that our facility is a warehouse, so it may be a bit cold in winter and a bit hot in summer so dress appropriately and wear comfortable, close-toed shoes. We can accommodate volunteers with mobility restrictions, including wheelchairs. Our events are not recommended for children under 10, and children under 14 need adult supervision. All volunteers need to abide by our Volunteer Code of Conduct in order to participate.
