Service Opportunities – September 26

TP the Town Victoria is a one day event where 22 participating grocery stores put toilet paper on sale for one day. There is a team of volunteers at each store who encourage people to donate toilet paper or make a financial contribution to The Mustard Seed Street Church. Toilet paper is the single most needed item and it’s donated to families in need all across Vancouver Island through the Food Share Network. Last year they raised more than 120,000 rolls for our community!

Shifts are at various stores around the city on Saturday, Oct. 5 (Thrifty Foods, Save-On-Foods and Country Grocers). If you are interested in helping out, please contact Andrew at
