Volunteer with WETRA
Volunteers are the backbone of the program, helping with the many tasks which may include side walking, leading, farm related chores, cleaning, painting and fundraising. All prospective volunteers must have a current police clearance with a vulnerable sector screening. You will be asked to commit fully to the weekly therapeutic riding sessions as a horse leader or a side walker. Sessions are usually 11 or 12 weeks in length. Other responsibilities may include farm maintenance, gardening, etc. as needed. All Volunteers are trained before being allowed to handle horses or assist with students during riding lessons. Volunteers are not expected to have any horse experience before attending a training orientation, just a strong desire to learn from our experienced staff.

Grocery Delivery Initiative Volunteer Opportunity – ASPIRE
The goal of this initiative is to provide free grocery delivery to those in the community that have severe mobility issues and other health problems that prevent them from getting groceries for themselves. In addition to this we provide delivery to those who consider themselves to be at high risk for COVID19 infection.
General Overview of Volunteer Activities:
- Volunteers will be assigned to one person on need; screened and assigned by ASPIRE.
- The client will provide a grocery list up to a maximum of 80 dollars to which brand names and preferences are given.
- At pre-arranged times, volunteers will shop at a grocery store in the area and then provide contactless delivery to the client’s place of residence. Grocery deliveries are limited to once a week at maximum.
- Following drop-off, the client is to e-transfer the whole cost of groceries to the volunteer. Volunteers will be reimbursed by ASPIRE if they do not receive payment within a reasonable window after delivery.
Currently, the Grocery Delivery Initiative is providing service in Windsor, ON.
We seek to help those who have great difficulty getting groceries for themselves on a day to day basis. This may include, but is not limited, to: Elderly, Immunocompromised, Respiratory Disease suffers (Chronic Bronchitis or Emphysema), Heart Failure patients. We will also be assisting those considered most susceptible in contracting or suffering the most deleterious effects of COVID-19.
Status of Initiative:
We are currently delivering to several individuals in the Windsor region who have been referred to us by workers at the Hospice of Windsor Essex. This initiative has been active since early June 2020 and we plan to continue the initiative indefinitely due to the significant need for this service in this region.
